Growing up, I gravitated towards the visual arts. I was infatuated by the Latin American muralist and the paintings of Goya and Paul Gauguin. I loved that they always told a story and you could immerse yourself for hours trying to dissect the symbolism and meaning in every corner of their paintings.
There came a point for me where my visuals had to move, they had to feel, they had to tell an intense narrative unique to them and their invented existence. Thus I became addicted to telling stories. Here you can read my published stories, giving credit to the wonderful publications that took a chance with me an published them first.
So have fun and get some tissue, I promise you some of these stories will have you crying in no time.
I have a BFA and attended the Iowa Summer Writers Workshop and Oglethorpe University writer’s workshops. I taught creative development at Portfolio Center.
I live in Alpharetta, Georgia. I am a member of the Atlanta Writer’s Club.
