A Few Words About Me

I’m a poet/cartoonist/writer and the founding editor/staff writer & cartoonist/layout artist for Plankton Press, a micropress that currently puts out GRAPH(feeties), a walking zine; Tiny Joys, a zine of small things that make life livable; and Dear Luna, an open letter to my friend Luna & those whose grief from loss is enduring.

You can find info on my books and other publications/artwork on other pages for this website: Books, Plankton Press, Other Publications.

Here’s some news about my work with links:

Announcement for my forthcoming book Doodling for Writers! Out June 2020!

My cartoon/free verse memoir, By the Forces of Gravity,  about a 1970s Berkeley childhood friendship cut short by tragedy, released through Books by Hippocampus  June 19, 2018.

In July, 2018, in celebration of the release of my book, I was interviewed by The Debutante Ball. I put it here, because it is more about me, as a person/writer/drawer, than specifically about the book. Click here to find out what I’d bring to a deserted island, the places I love, what teen-me thought I’d be when I grew up, my advice to writers and the next big thing. 🙂

In September, 2018, Fear No Lit posted my visual interview, which was super fun to do and I love how it turned out. Click here to see/read the interview.

I was also recognized as a thought provoker in VoyagePhoenix (October 25, 2018). Fun interview and you can see some of my hybrid art here.

Other personal details: born in Santa Barbara, grew up in Berkeley, but have been living in the Sonoran Desert with my family for nearly half my life. I miss the ocean every day.

From a young age, I have been outspoken, despite being frightfully shy by nature. I am no longer bald, but still sport a short do.
