Although I’ve enjoyed writing throughout my life, the writing retreat in Tuscany opened up new possibilities for me. Kathryn Kay is an extraordinarily gifted workshop leader, I don’t know how she does it. She can help a writer discover a whole new direction that will open a whole new narrative. The women she gathers together in these retreats are supportive, inquisitive, and best of all: they are willing to listen. Another high point is the chef she hires to cook for the retreat! Delish.

This section of my website will showcase pieces of an overall story. At the retreat I learned a style of writing that tells a long story through a collection of short stories connected through characters and time periods. I will be posting new pieces of writing once a month.
