a novella

Lenni is an accomplished cellist who gives little away about the inner turmoil that rocks her sense of self.  We follow her over a few weeks of summer when she makes decisions that change her life in ways she least expects.

three short stories

In each of these three playful short stories, the reader visits a world within a world.


In Monkey Puzzle, the narrator encounters her spirit guide in a magical garden.


In Antic Disposition, unscripted drama disrupts a comedy of manners staged by the new director of the Menagerie Theatre Company.


In Pause, an unfamiliar situation, in the heart of her familiar terrain, creates uncertainty for the narrator.

collected poems front cover.jpg


This is a collection of poems, spanning twenty years, each of which captures a moment, an emotion or an idea.


They are not presented chronologically, or with dates.  Instead, the poems are arranged in themes that emerge from the body of work.


The first theme, Flight-path, is about making a journey or finding yourself in another place.


The second theme, To be with you, explores the experience of being in a woman to woman relationship.


The poems in the third group, Time and tide, are meditations inspired by the cycles of nature, in particular the element of water.
