Writing stayed with me throughout. My commentary and other nonfiction appeared in Yale Law Report, Yale Journal of Law and Feminism, and in various media. 

Serving as Portland Ballet’s Interim Executive Director brought me full circle. I had to draw on law and management, certainly, but also on memory and love of the arts. I began devoting more time to writing and was accepted into The Writers Hotel conference in Manhattan, where national and international authors became mentors and comrades. 

In addition to writing short stories, I’ve completed my first novel and am working on a volume of essays and a novella-story collection at the intersection of humor, imagination, and the tenacious, elusive link between art and justice.
