Memoir & Essay

WritingI 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.

When my fiancé told me about the other woman,” Salon, 22 April 2011.

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

On Writer’s Terror,” BREVITY’s Nonfiction Blog, 30 October 2013.

Cop Cars,” The Baltimore Review, Summer 2014.

“Waltham, Massachusetts,” Orion, November/December 2014.

Letting Go of Success,” What The Flicka?, 7 April 2015.

    1. I’ll admit my blogging has become a bit sporadic, to say the least. There are just so many other compelling things demanding my attention at present. But I do hope to post something substantial here in the not-too-distant future, so feel free to follow by clicking the Follow button at right. As for the memoir, I’m still working on finding a satisfactory publisher!
