I am very excited to announce that I have had a chapter from my memoir published in an anthology called So Long: Short Memoirs of Loss and Remembrance.

In order to celebrate, I will be hosting a book launch party with literary readings and live music as well as a sneak peak at the solo show I've been working on about studying yoga at an ashram in India. I hope you can join!

I am thrilled to present this amazing lineup:

Here's more info about the book:


Editor CoCo Harris has gathered together a number of gifted writers and poets who take us through their personal assortment of memoirs. Reading these accounts is somewhat like window peeking into private lives. These fertile and varied collections of remembrances are unique in demonstrating how stories, vigorously written and connected by a common theme, can become compulsive page turners. The stories speak to the power and poignancy of everyday people living through extreme circumstances. They ignite memories not thought about for years of family, friends, coworkers and incidences struggling to be re remembered.

So Long: Short Memoirs of Loss and Remembrance will travel from the night stand to the coffee table and recliner. It will be handed off from neighbor to neighbor and read at house parties as are all the best poems and stories of our personal histories.

⎯Gerald A. McBreen, Poet Laureate Pacific Washington

So Long: Short Memoirs of Loss and Remembrance poignantly bears witness to the impact and transformative power of death on our lives. It offers open and intimate views of some of the many ways people cope with loss—from heartache and anger to love and understanding, and affirms that it is possible to grow from even the most painful experience and go on with life. As the title implies, these are the kind of goodbyes that take 'so long', they can last forever. It is a collection that can touch and move the reader and perhaps most importantly, it can inform how we face loss in our own lives.

⎯Janet Amalia Weinberg, author of Still Going Strong: Memoirs, Stories, and Poems About Great Older Women

This collection is full of the bittersweet echoes of lives - and innocence - lost. Quirky and vulnerable, the voices in So Long testify to the endurance of human love and the uniqueness of each loss.

⎯Eleanor Vincent, author of Swimming with Maya: A Mother's Story

This is the Amazon page:

I get author discounts so I can get it to you for $12 instead of $18.99. Let me know if you're interested.

Happy July happenings!
