My life as an album cover . . . alas, I never put in the hours to learn to play guitar or sing like a rock star (maybe someday!), but I do bring that passion, bravery of expression, and rebel spirit into my life—as a partner, friend, daughter, sister, animal lover, road-tripper, homebody, poet, essayist, children's book publisher, and an editor / editorial consultant. I'm a creative; I love to sit around a table and brainstorm ideas, lead workshops, design websites, learn about herbal remedies, practice yoga, write for days, & draw schematics of ethereal ideas. I spend a great deal of time thinking about justice, imagination, & how to use what we have in our hearts & heads to make the world a little bit better.
