I write because I have to.

Early stories were black comedy, for it was a relief to laugh at life. Families are complex and so are wars, and I write about survivors of both. Some writing takes in sacred place and spiritual quests.

Lately I become ever more conscious of the fragility of life on earth, and write about those who take care of it. I aim for stories that will take you places and leave you changed.

Thank you for reading!
