A bit about this blog:  If you have a moment and would like to know more about this blog and my writing, please consider clicking here to read my interview by The Woolf  (June 2018).

A bit about me: In very short, I was born and raised in New England, studied and taught in a few countries before immigrating from China to Switzerland where I remain with my husband — a watchmaker. I teach English and chair The Pernessy Poets in Lausanne.

Some writing cred: My poems have appeared, or are forthcoming, in Crab Orchard Review, Snapdragon, Stoneboat Literary Journal, Havik, Necessary Fiction, Rock & Sling, Offshoots, Everyday Haiku: An Anthology, The Society of Classical Poets: Journal 2017, and in other literary journals. My prose has appeared, or is forthcoming, in Talesmag, Swissnews and in various other magazines and newspapers.

Naomi Shihab Nye chose my poem, Said Unsaid, for a Geneva Writers’ Group Literary Prize (2nd place) in 2017 and my work has been featured by National Poetry Writing Month (NaPoWriMo).

Writing is simpler than you’d think.
Just turn wine into blood and blood into ink.
