Member Info

Portland, OR
Nov 2010

Stealth bohemian, crazed mother of five, and indie author of "Seven Blackbirds," a Highly Entertaining and Inspirational Work of Literary Fiction about a young mother rebuilding her life after an abusive marriage. Top-subscribed female author on Scribd.com, where I publish a humor column MOTHER’S DAY OUT.  Live with my family of five children and four chickens in Portland, Oregon, and am often seen lurking around Powell’s City of Books in favorite t-shirt, emblazoned “I travel for book groups.” Also an active advocate of domestic violence awareness and prevention.
