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. I’ve also been published in Brevity, Landscape Architecture, Under the Gum Tree, Punctuate, Femme Fotale and Hip Mama and am the author of a creative nonfiction book, A Land Between, and a cartoon/free verse memoir, By the Forces of Gravity, about a 1970s Berkeley childhood friendship cut short by tragedy. By the Forces of Gravity was 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. 🙂
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.
