(LISTEN TO "A DAUGHTER'S TRUTH")

"...Is a femme dyke working class poet who was born and raised in Michigan, but now lives, writes, and teaches in Seattle. She believes art is a tool for social change. Her poems, essays, and novel-in-progress explore issues such as gender, sexuality, social class and race. Her work brings into focus lives and experiences not often explored by mainstream artists. Her long-term goal is to begin a queer writing institute here in Seattle. To that end, she has been teaching queer writing classes for two years, and has recently quit her day job to pursue this objective."
