I am a professional writer and storyteller living in North Florida, USA. In my mid-40’s, I am employed full time at a local university, while blogging and working on my creative writing pursuits. Both of my parents died when I was in my mid-twenties, and I have been writing about atheist grief/mourning issues since 2010. You can check out my grief blog here.
