About Me

  My journey into silence began four decades ago, and I am grateful that I can hear all the sounds of life again after receiving two cochlear implants.  It is through my writing that I heard my own voice.  Over the last 30 years, I have written about hearing loss, grief and bereavement, aging, differences and all things diversity. 

In my spare time I like to paint, listen to music, hang out with nature, share laughs with my amazing grandson, hug warm puppies, break bread with family and friends, read good books and of course write.
