I have self-published two books, both nonfiction: Dancing in Heaven in 2011, and Where Memories Meet in 2015. The issues I have written about are difficult: a disabled sister, and cancer in Dancing in Heaven; and death, caregiving, and Alzheimer’s in Where Memories Meet. I am not an expert on any of these topics, but I am willing to share my experience.

My other published work includes:
