About me

Introduction I am a literary novelist and screenwriter who believes that the process of creating art is that of making meaning, discovering abundance, revealing grace. I expect the literary arts to nourish the mind and the heart, together -- for one without the other is an impoverishment. In a world of technical virtuosity, I prefer the profound. I am the author of two novels, The Unfastened Heart (Dutton) and Copper Crown (William Morrow), with a third underway. I'm most grateful to have received literary fellowships from the National Endowment for the Arts, the California Arts Council and Yaddo. And I'm deeply appreciative of the generous community of readers which has supported my work over these unfolding years. Thank you for giving my work vibrance and resonance as you've welcomed it into your abundant lives.
