Where to buy my book

My essay and column collection, Writing Home, is available locally at Yellow Door Art Market in Berkley and Paper Trail Books in downtown Royal Oak. (You’ll find a few used copies on Amazon — but new copies are sold only in retail stores and writing workshops.)

Written during the years I worked at home while raising my son, the collection includes 93 pieces that were previously published in national magazines and newspapers. The book has been dubbed “a love letter to home and family life,” and won several non-fiction awards, including one from Writer’s Digest and another from Midwest Independent Publishers Association.
