Book ‘Em North Carolina


I am honored to be asked to participate at the Book ‘Em North Carolina Writer’s Workshop on February 22, 2014.

I will join several others in a panel discussion on “The Evolving Face of Publishing” and “Promoting: The Other Half of Writing”. I will also have many of Karenzo Media’s titles available for purchase at the event, with 40% of sales going to help promote literacy in North Carolina.

Please check out the Book ‘Em NC writer’s workshop and plan to attend!

Walt Whitman says about his autobiography, Specimen Days “…At any rate I obey my happy hour’s command, which seems curiously imperative. May-be, if don’t do anything else, I shall send out the most wayward, spontaneous, fragmentary book ever printed.” This is what I feel at this juncture of my life, the need to gather together memories of my ancestors as well as my own memories into some semblance of order. Because all of those fragments, all of the fragments that make up any life, become stories. I am the mother of three sons, who affectionately (I hope!) call me 'gypsy mom' because I tend to wander around a bit soaking in the universe's wonders. I am currently working towards an MFA in Creative Writing at Florida Atlantic University. I have published essays with Heritage Press, Florida Living, and the St. Pauls Review. I am currently working on a book of poems about the Florida Everglades pioneers and a memoir about grief and the bonds of friendship. I live in my hometown, Jupiter, Florida and work as a freelance writer and curriculum specialist.

  1. Thanks for posting this. I just printed out the page with info and hope to get to attend. It’s free and it’s in NC…nice. It’s in the same town my husband’s family usually meets for family reunions.
