Since I was old enough to form words, I’ve been telling stories to heal myself.
I believe that story is sacred; that life is story; and that story never ends.

Some stories I haven’t written yet:

Girl Dies When Driver Plays Chicken

Don’t Let the Blonde Hair Fool You, I’m Part Indian

You can check out my LinkedIn profile and my Scribd site. I also post haiku on Tumblr… sometimes.
