I am the author of My Name Is Beloved, winner of the 2017 Cascade Writing Contest award for Unpublished Memoir. I am currently seeking a publisher for this book.
I am also the author of two self-published books of poetry, which you can read more about here.
I am a wife, mother (of a young adult), daughter, sister, sister-in-law, daughter-in-law, friend, Christian, lawyer (recovering), and person who loves life. I’ve experience some difficulties and pain in my life, and am thankful they have made me stronger and shaped who I am.
I love to write, and would often “write” things in my head that I never committed to paper. That’s why I decided to blog. To make room in my head for more. When I start writing in my head, the thing I am writing will stay there and take up space, thoughts, and energy for some time. I figure if I write it down here in my blog I will be able to move on to the next thing more quickly.
My law school income tax professor commented on my blog: “You are writing from the heart, and as always, doing it well. I hope you stick with it — there are always moments when a blogger gets tired — because you are making us all think. Which is what this internet thing should be all about.” I hope you agree.
