My Own Story

My family moved often when I was a kid—from Oklahoma to Louisiana to Wyoming to Texas to Colorado. As a young adult, I continued the pattern of moving, spending time in Arizona, Oklahoma, Indiana, Missouri, Vermont, and finally Massachusetts. As a result, I never truly felt a sense of home.

Our late dog, Gizmo.

I suppose I write in an attempt to locate home, some center point that grounds me. Because stories—both as something to read and something to live—matter to me, I hope this website reflects that.
