My husband and I live on a ranch in the bootheel of New Mexico eighty miles from a grocery store and a hundred miles from a coffee shop. I talk to my pets, my closet is full of city clothes unfit for ranch life, and I dance to old-school funk while cleaning the house. Drop in when you’re passing through. I’ll keep the light on!

I hold an MFA in Creative Writing and teach literature and creative writing at the University of Arizona and Cochise College. I am the director of the Cochise Creative Writing Celebration and contributing editor for Cochise College’s Literary Magazine. Over the years I have worked as a ranch hand, bartender, waitress, restaurateur, and dog trainer.
