I'm excited to announce that my novel Delilah Recovered will be published this year with Atmosphere Press.




Delilah Recovered is coming soon!


Dee is an unemployed accountant managing an anxiety disorder and an eviction notice. She's also a powerful witch, but she doesn't know that yet.

Until one fateful night, when her reality cracks wide open. Two witch hunters attack her, and she finally learns the truth.


Well, part of it. As a descendent of Joan of Arc, her family is the “guardian of the ring.” Uncovering this information only leaves her with more questions. Why did her coven banish her for three hundred years? Why is the ring so important? Why has her true identity been kept a secret from her?


To put all the missing pieces together, she must go on a series of mind-altering quests. She’ll risk life and limb to recover the facts traveling through time from the court of the Sun King Louis XIV of France to the Salem Witch Trials. Meanwhile, she searches Chicago’s shadows to find and translate her family's grimoire pages, only to discover she’s the guardian of King Solomon’s ring and the power it holds to command good and evil.


From the safety of reality to the underbelly of a secret world, she must take her rightful place to protect witches and humans from the ring.

This month I am reading poetry at a music recital AND leading a workshop on creativity!





FINDING HOPE IN THE MIDST OF LOSS

A music & poetry recital

Feb. 18



I am so honored to participate in this recital produced by one of my oldest and dearest friends, Kathrine Eldridge. Kathrine is a talented flutist producing this recital with an Illinois Arts Council Agency grant.




“Through this concert, my goal is to shine a light on the beauty found amongst our suffering with words, music, and art. Seeing the resurgence of the Coronavirus made me realize how important it is to share my art journaling practice that has helped me cope during these uncertain times. I hope to inspire others to start their own practice whether it be with music, poetry, or art," explained musician Kathrine Eldridge.

If I’m completely honest, I never set out to be an urban gardener or an urban composter, for that matter. A few years ago, when my neighbor Ms. Diane flew away to Mexico for her long-anticipated retirement, I took on our building’s communal garden. She left big gardening clogs to fill. Ms. Diane’s garden was a tribute to wildflowers of the Midwest, and it took hours to maintain. At the time, I didn’t really have any idea what I was taking under my purview. I didn’t have a green limb anywhere to be found on my body. And between us, I didn’t have an extreme passion for it.

My garden had a secret surprise for me this summer.
