I wrote poetry first. Then I went on to write essays, opinion pieces, and other creative nonfiction. For five years I wrote feature stories (hundreds of them) for The University of Texas. I've ghost written a memoir, helped write and edit legislative research, and written opinion pieces that argue for fair policies for adult students. And I still write poems.
At its heart, I believe writing is about honoring our own stories and the stories of others. I believe writing can be a powerful force for social change.
Here are some selections from my published work. For more, see my blog Pics and Paragraphs, where for a year I collected photos and the narratives that accompanied them.
