WRITER & SPEAKER
BASED IN SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA
My writings would appeal to those who have personal experience of being abused as a child, to someone who works in the field of foster care, or to those who know someone in that world. I don't know about the rest of you as my work is intense. I write about my childhood and the long term effects of it so to better understand it all as well as raise awareness.
My stories have been featured on NPR, ABC8, KPBS, CBS Radio, the San Francisco Chronicle, the San Diego Union-Tribune and other media outlets.
