This Was My City: more creative nonfiction, experimental narratives exploring identity and place, landscaped by Washington and Michigan.
Momentum: a collection of creative nonfiction essays exploring late-aged motherhood, race, class, feminism, education, and the art of dialogue in an era seemingly dominated by Twitter and Flutter.
No Kingdom There: a collection of poetry exploring everyday metamorphoses and transformations as “being-in-the-midst-of-and-at-the-edge”, exploring syntaxes and experimenting with middle voices, echoes, mergers and emergences, and other occurrences of the sublime, in language that is vivid and concrete.
