I write. Every now and then. And every now and then, I muster the courage to publish what I write somewhere.
I am the author of ‘Worlds Apart,’ a book written out of my experience in China. My second book and my first novel, ‘The Star Whisperer’ is a YA book that will be published shortly. Or so I hope. I am nervous about my writing always. But I continue to write because I believe that our words matter. Our voices matter. My soul is a silent scream when I don’t write.
So. I write.
Of late, I have been interested in promoting mental health, wellness, and working with courageous women who are forging new paths. I deeply admire such feminists, and I hope that I can continue to offer them the platform and whatever resources I can summon up to promote their work. To them, I dedicate this page.
