I believe deeply in the power of story, connection, and authentic relationship.

I’m a writer with two award-winning novels and a third just released, a staff writing position at Modern Moto Magazine, a blog, four kids and a full-time job as a registered nurse.

My blog is a mix of life lessons, travel stories and motorcycle adventures built on a foundation of yoga and organic food, poetry and painting with a belief that life should be an intentional endeavor.

My first published novel was Letters From The Ledge, published in 2012. Finn Again and Trulane, published in 2016 and 2017 respectively, are related but can be read in either order. I have written short stories and for magazines, short stories as well as online content.

Sometimes an idea needs time to mature and dry out before it can be put to the fire and tested. If you try too soon sometimes all you get is a lot of smoke and not a lot of fire. Writing is a very intuitive and connected process for me, so if I'm not connecting there's a reason for it.

Either something has to mature in the story and it's not ready to be told yet or maybe something in me has to happen. Or, maybe I'm trying to write the wrong story. Maybe I'm trying to focus on fiction when there's an article or some non-fiction that needs to come out. Maybe I'm worried about finishing one story when the beginning of another is tugging at my heart wanting to be roughed out on paper while the magic is there.

Bottom line? I try to write when I'm inspired to write, and when I'm not, I realize I either need to fill my tank and recharge, or ask myself if I'm trying to put my energy into the wrong project at the moment. This is where it helps to be a diverse writer with multiple streams of creativity and projects to draw from. (less)

The Art of Pilgrimage

“Pilgrimage is a metaphor for any journey with the purpose of finding something that matters deeply to the traveler.”


~ Phil Cousineau


I picked up a book during my travels in Nepal. This is nothing new. I am always buying books, especially when I travel. If something catches my eye, or my heart – it becomes a sort of verbal souvenir. I’ve also found that many times, local shops in foreign count...

“When your defenses are down, it's alarming and beautiful - all that strength contained in a glass jar of innocence." He swallowed. "I've loved you since the moment you realized the astronomical odds of us meeting like that, because in that brief second, I watched you suddenly open your heart to the possibility of something magical happening - something unexpected.”
Lynda Meyers, Letters From the Ledge

“Brendan stopped reading. The words had melted into a liquid blur...In his possession was a box full of information that would likely fill in the gaps and help him to wrap his brain around the whys of her death. And yet, there was really only one question that mattered, and Tommy had already answered it.”
Lynda Meyers, Letters From the Ledge

“Don’t ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive, and go do it. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.”
