Hi All, I am currently  pursuing an MA in Biography & Memoir at the Graduate Center (CUNY).  I have words in Longreads,  the Irish Times,  A Woman's Thing and other places. An essay I wrote was short-listed for the Hennessy Literary Award in 2012. For the last few years I have been holed-up working on a book of essays combining research and memoir. Themes include: trauma, recovery, mental illness, chronic pain, addiction, immigration, the mother wound, colonialism, mysticism and mythology. 

I look forward to connecting with all of you!
