My stories have been published in print in The New England Writers’ Network and in Buffalo Spree and Lake Affect magazines. I’ve had short stories published online in Inkburns and in Potpourri: A Magazine of the Literary Arts. Area newspapers, both daily and suburban, have printed my op-ed pieces.
In addition to my published short story collection, The Last Generation of Women Who Cook, in which all of the stories involve men, women and food, I have one finished chick-lit novel and one novel-in-progress. I’m a member of an active writers’ group, and am currently a writer at a college where I develop marketing strategy and create collateral communications materials as well as feature stories for the university’s magazines, parent publications and other audiences.
I’m a good part Norwegian, which explains my passion for all things potato and love for white creamy foods, and a smaller part German, which explains really nothing.
Words I would use to describe myself would be organized, whimsical, imaginative, fun-loving, humorous, fanciful, witty and grounded, somewhat contradictory, perhaps, but isn’t that what makes a person interesting?
