Told well, stories have the power to inspire, educate, and entertain. They tug at our emotions. They make us think. They drive change.
Stories connect us, foster understanding and make us realize that we’re not alone. And as I’ve learned through telling my own stories and helping at-risk teens to tell theirs, they can also heal and transform lives.
My memoirs (both eBook & Paperback) are available through Amazon, BN.com and KOBO. They can also be ordered through any bookstore. Signed paperbacks are available at Secret Garden Books in Seattle. For more information, visit my book page.

Teen Mentoring/Publishing Program
I recently partnered with High School English Teacher Marjie Bowker to help her students claim their power by writing and publishing their stories in a powerful story collection titled We Are Absolutely Not Okay: Fourteen Stories by Teenagers Who Are Picking up the Pieces. If you are wondering about the healing power of personal storytelling, watch this interview with three of the teen authors on New Day Northwest.
