Summer 2014

Reading- July 10, North Winds Arts Center, 701 Water Street, Port Townsend, WA

This summer, as a fellow at the Norman Mailer Writers' Colony at the University of Utah under the mentorship of Kevin Oderman and a cohort of inspiring nonfiction writers, I worked on my memoir. I also survived a bat bite, eleven shots as part of my rabies vaccine, and a harrowing inner tube adventure down the Weber River!

In July I was awarded the Non-fiction prize in the Pacific Northwest Writers 2014 Literary Contest for a section of my memoir in progress entitled, 'To the Middle of the Earth.'
