I am currently authoring a narrative memoir based upon the lives of my ten biological sisters from whom I was separated for almost forty years. At a young age, I, as well as some of my siblings, landed in an orphanage and then entered the foster care system.
Once reunited, which was truly an act of Grace, I wanted to know what happened to our family and what each sister had experienced in their lives. Just as important, I wanted to learn who I was.
My journey took on a life of its own, and by spending one-on-one time with each of my sisters, I was able to scribe their stories and piece together our family history. The story is uplifting and hopeful and I wish to share its strength and beauty.
In addition, I am working on a brand new podcast - FICTITIOUS TRUTHS - in which I offer powerful stories about child abuse and neglect, stories comprised from real life events experienced by the children I have worked with in addition to myself and my ten sisters.

I grew up in the foster care system. As with most children in this situation, I found myself without a way to express my feelings or explain my experiences. I discovered that writing is a powerful way for children and adults to come to terms with unresolved issues. As a woman, I believe writing is about finding my voice. The process of putting words down on paper helps me find my authenticity. Words come from deep within and shine light on the path that is before me.
