Weird is Good.


I’ve lived a very different life than most people. Came out as a transgender woman in the early 1990s. Survived rape, an abusive marriage, alcoholism, and two suicide attempts. Donated a kidney to a stranger. Learned to ride a motorcycle in my mid-40s.

Not surprisingly, the challenges and traumas that I’ve dealt with have become fuel for my creative writing. I write stories about women, often gay women, who push back against a world determined to put them in their place.


Stories from the Fringe

My work isn’t biographical, but it does echo my experiences of a society that privileges white, wealthy, straight, cisgender, Christian men and punishes everyone else.

I seek to challenge assumptions and stereotypes, while telling gritty, engaging, entertaining stories about people living on the fringes of society. I hope you enjoy them.
