“What would happen if one woman told the truth about her life?  The world would split open.”
~ Muriel Rukeyser


Collaboration with Dark Sky Aerial

In 2017, I was asked to audition for the Award-winning Aerial Theater company Dark Sky Aerial’s newest production. DSA commissioned two poems and two different spoken word performances for two separate scenes in their full-length ambulatory theater production called “TILT.” The poem “Worthless : Worth This” is about body-dysmorphia, cultural messages about the body, and about how these affect women in particular. The second poem, “The Masked Woman’s Words,” is about the masks we each wear daily while walking through our lives and the masks we would prefer to wear, instead. “The Masked Woman’s Words” was created using my own words interwoven with text fragments provided by advance ticket purchasers. Each poem is spoken over choreography and music to create a visceral and enlightening experience for the viewer.

The second run of “TILT” will performed by Dark Sky Aerial in the summer of 2018!

Foreword for Spirit Messages: 222 Channeled Inspirations by Shane Knox

It was such an honor to be asked by Shane Knox, Modern Shaman, to write the foreword to his book Spirit Messages: 222 Channeled Inspirations.  I received another surprise when my copy of the book arrived in the mail and I found some of my words and my name on the back cover of the book! Such a delight! And, wow, what a powerful book of messages from Spirit to keep each of us uplifted on a daily (hourly!) basis.

Thank you, Shane Knox!

Collaboration with Dark Sky Aerial

In 2016, I was commissioned by the aerial performance company Dark Sky Aerial to write and perform a spoken word piece called “Walking.” Choreography by Isabelle Dove-Robinson was added to the spoken word track along with music. Words and movement together became “Solicitous,” a scene in the full-length aerial theater production, “OPIA by Dark Sky Aerial.”

“Finding Amrita”

My story, “Finding Amrita,” was just released as part of the book Autobiography of Our Orgasms. It’s a beautiful book in which 16 authors tell the truth about their lives in stories that celebrate sexuality and orgasm. Want a copy? The book is available on Amazon. I’m happy to sign a copy for you! Please email me at [email protected] for more information.




“How to Shimmy”

My poetry has been widely published over my writing career. One of the most fun magazines to publish my work was not a literary magazine. It was this one! You can find one of my poems in the Spring 2010 issue of Bellydance, a Raks Sharki Magazine.



Into the Green

My first collection of poems was called Into the Green and it was published by The New Poet’s Series, a division of Brick House Books. It’s available through Amazon. If you’d like a signed copy, please email me here: [email protected].
