Although my stories are different, each involves immigrants surviving against odds. Plants and people are more alike than you might think. 

A featured Wattpad author, I write environmental fiction.

THE GROVE is a Featured story in Fantasy, a #WattpadPick, ranked #18 in Environment.

Beside a bouquet of precision Sharpies, I get to write about the emotional side of the natural world while teaching art and environmental awareness to a wide audience of all ages. I enjoy running on the river trails with a rescue dog who rescued me back, skating on butter-smooth ice, snuggling with a big gray cat, and reading stories that evoke a time and place all their own.
