Currently I’m writing about Complex PTSD, what it means to heal from trauma, how to break generational cycles, and ending childhood sexual abuse (CSA). I’m currently finishing a trauma memoir, Baggage Claim, and posting excerpts for my patrons at Patreon.
My four novels: Dead Weight, Willful Ignorance, Growing Chocolate, and Wrestling Alligators are all available on Amazon Kindle. Write To Be Heard (Lighthouse Publishing of the Carolinas) is a non-fiction book that I co-authored with Aaron Gansky to help new writers find their voice. My short work has appeared in The Rumpus, scissors and spackle, The Citron Review, and Mo+th (Bombshelter), and Bird in the Hand: Risk & Flight (Outrider).
Prior to writing novels, I co-owned a production services company for film and television for ten years, serving as co-producer, production manager, and creative consultant for dozens of TV and film projects as well as commercials, PSAs and educational films. In addition to writing eight feature-length screenplays, I’ve written episodes of children’s shows for Saban Entertainment. The award-winning short film, The Green Bench, I wrote, produced, and starred in is available on YouTube and Vimeo.
