About this author

I've been writing stories since I was five years old. What I did before that, I don't remember. Just loafed, I guess.

That's what PG Wodehouse said, and it applies to me. My first big break-through was winning Seventeen Magazine's Short Story Contest when I was a student at Northwestern University. Walk Me to Midnight is my first novel, but I have published a dozen short stories in literary magazines like Rosebud, Clockwatch Review, Descant, Red Rock Review,Clare, Thema, QWF, 300 Days of Sun and these anthologies: "Suicidally Beautiful" (sports fiction),"Days of Sorrow Days of Grace" (stories from the heartland), "Mourning Sickness," and "Fire Stories." I am the author of 54 children's stories published by the Arkansas Reading Project, 17 c...more

“In beauty may I walk.
All day long may I walk.
Through the returning seasons may I walk.
On the trail marked with pollen may I walk.
With grasshoppers about my feet may I walk.
With dew about my feet may I walk.
With beauty may I walk.
With beauty before me, may I walk.
With beauty behind me, may I walk.
With beauty above me, may I walk.
With beauty below me, may I walk.
With beauty all around me, may I walk.
In old age wandering on a trail of beauty, lively, may I walk.
In old age wandering on a trail of beauty, living again, may I walk.
It is finished in beauty.
It is finished in beauty.

― Navajo Blessingway
