I am a Licensed Independent Social Worker with a Masters in Social Work from The Ohio State University. I write about living with chronic illness, politics, health, and social issues in this blog. I am a white cis-woman (she/her) who identifies as pansexual. I have published poetry and journal articles.
When I’m not blogging, I’m working on my latest project, a historical novel about grief, loss, and love set against the backdrop of the education and child labor movements in 19th Century New England. The protagonist is a gay man because I think there are enough love stories about grief and healing told from a straight perspective. I believe exploration of the LGBTQ+ experience throughout history is important both from nonfictional and fictional perspectives.
To Make a Long Story Short:
Who I am: writer, wife, daughter, social worker, pansexual, atheist, human
Things I love: my family, my friends, my dog, and story telling.
Things I do: recover, write, knit, talk, and live.
