I am currently at work on a book-length memoir about the coincidences that have shaped my path through life, a path that has taken me:
- from a homeschooled childhood in rural Virginia to a PhD in philosophy from New York University,
- from love and heartache in France to a delightful marriage to a man from my hometown, and
- from years of atheism and spiritual doubt to a vibrant faith in the beneficence of the universe.
Here are some of the shorter pieces of memoir and personal essay I’ve published in the last several years.

“Nurturing Genius,” What The Flicka?, 24 October 2013.
