Here in my virtual writing living room, you will find me always dreaming of writing, and working on new poems and short essays, as well as my manuscript and photos. I love having other writers and creatives around me, so please come in and join me for a cup of tea, some authentic conversation, and some down to earth honest writing. We don’t have to do this alone. Writing in community is inspiring and encouraging.
I am also sharing about writing tools and inspiration, workshops, writing + mental health, writing paired with food and atmosphere, publishing, and all things writing and creativity. Please bring your notebook and pen, and stay a while.
I care very much about mental health, self-care, trauma-healing, and living in the present moment (mindfulness). You will find stories and activities related to these areas of our personal journeys, in areas of writing and wellness.
Finally as a writer, book lover, Librarian and book club leader, you can be sure I love books, and I have book reviews, inspiration, and more for you to discover here. (Also, a little secret: the more you read, the more you will be inspired to write.)
So glad you are here.
Here you will find me dreaming of writing.
Join me in my virtual writing living room.

Writing + Mental Health
Mental health, mental wellness, health and wellness … all of these terms are growing in popularity in everyday conversation, as more people feel safe and confident enough to stand up and share, to ask for help, and to advocate for others who are struggling. Writing has a huge role in mental wellness. We can find many ways to write ourselves towards wellness, and I hope you will explore this with me here.
