artist statement

I am a writer. I write to make sense of life and to transform my life for the better. I also write professionally--I form my ideas, observations, and research into narratives that help others make sense of their lives, too.
Over the past ten years, I have studied the research about the spiritual, intellectual, and physical effects of writing. My speaking, research, and current nonfiction writing focuses on how writing can transform and shape lives, especially the lives of teenagers.
As a writing coach, I am dedicated to supporting other writers in shaping their work and finding an audience. To that end, I blog regularly and host a monthly mastermind call for writers.
I am currently working on a fiction project for children.
