My talk at American Univeristy of Paris, September 2019


Here's the link to the talk I gave at the American University of Paris in 2019, while I was still writing The Nine.

Vermont Studio Center January 2020



The view from my perfect writing studio at the Vermont Studio Center where I was so lucky to get a month-long fellowship to work on The Nine. I could not have done it without this time and space. Endless gratitude!

Publishing contract with St. Martin's Press

Excited to report that my newest project, The Nine, A True Story of Nine Daring Women and Their Escape from The Third Reich, is now under contract with St. Martins and I will be working with a wonderful editor there, Elisabeth Dyssegaard.

Walter Benjamin, a refugee in Paris, spent his time in the national library.

I'm very proud that my essay was published in Catapult. Now I can stop obsessively re-writing it and get on with other projects!

Reading to the fifth graders of Garrison

I visited the Garrison Performing Arts School in Savannah and read The Hiding Game to 80 fifth graders. We played Cadavre Esquise together and talked about what it takes to write a book.

Some of the surrealist drawings we did together!
Collective collage at the book launch party

We had a wonderful book lunch in Savannah. I enjoyed seeing old friends and sharing the Hiding Game with others. We set up a table for people to make a collective collage as the artists did at the Villa Air-Bel.

Here's Danny hanging artwork at the Villa Bel-Air

My most recent publications include a novel excerpt titled "The Reef" in the Catamaran Literary Reader, two short short stories titled, "Ice" and "Take the Spaceship" in Two Bridges Literary Arts Journal, and my poem "Reading Kafka's Letters at Sea" in Sou'Wester.

ESOC performed Train of Stones at the Luxembourg Theater Festival this June!

Director Ruth Ann Armstrong as the Witch
The Fox Witch

I was so thrilled to see this performance of my poems with music and in a wonderful setting!
