Me, After Dad


For many years, I worked with teens whose parents were drug addicts. My work with those resilient teens compelled me to try reconnecting with my own father, and my memoir about life with Dad was born. I am completing a second book, the story of Dad’s infamous life based on several lengthy interviews with him. When not writing, I run a nonprofit environmental organization. I live in the Pacific Northwest with my husband, two teenagers, two cats and a Lagotto therapy dog.
