Author, Teacher, Activist
I'm taking a stand for the intolerable state of our nation and planet and writing is how I do it--sometimes fun, sometimes serious--but always with purpose.
My life and work are dedicated to limited government, equal opportunity among all the world's citizens, and stewardship of our land and resources.
I teach foreign language because I love language students--they're curious, adventurous, sensitive--just like me.
Please, stand with me and let's make a conscious shift in our global culture together, because, as we say in French: "If you don't do politics, politics will do you."

A story of mid-life mischief catalyzed by the two greatest American hurricanes of our age, Evacuation Vacation is a voyage into dysfunction, both cultural and personal. After the first hurricane Missy tries to do everything right, but it turns out all wrong. After the second she knows better, or so she thinks. In truth, she's forced to abandon her illusion of control and purpose to navigate the unfamiliar territory of nihilism.
Convinced she's not depressed, just reasonably disillusioned, she self-medicates and creates a fantasy world around her for the three months of her second evacuation. She visits each of her sisters, one in Arkansas, one in Manhattan and one in burbs outside Boston, all three suffering crises of their own. Together they indulge their inner-children each in her unique way, reluctant victims enjoying denial, for as long as the evacuation vacation goes on . . . (Read More).
