News & Events

I just presented a talk on “Retellings of Classic Tales” at the Pennwriters Conference in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, on May 18 2014. I will be leading workshops and giving a couple of readings in Seldovia and Anchorage, Alaska, in July 2014. Check back for details!

Here are some of the events I just did for The Fairest of Them All, if you’d like to gaze upon them wistfully and with a glowing sense of nostalgia:
