My Work and Activities

  • Writers’ Workshop at Castle Rock Writers. I presented in July 2019 on “Out-of-Date Stereotypes in Character Development,” sponsored by the Castle Rock Writers. Contemporary writing often continues to be dogged by out-of-date stereotypes, but there are methods to enliven writing.

  • Never Retreat book launch, Barnes & Noble, May 2018

  • Denver Woman’s Press Club salon, “What’s Love Got to Do With It?” November 2016, with authors Meg Benjamin and Jean Jacobsen.

Organizations, Resources, Fun

  • 3 Quarks Daily: a compilation of interesting items from around the web each day, in the areas of science, design, literature, current affairs, art, politics, philosophy, and anything deemed inherently fascinating, including a daily poem. For example, recently, The Opioid And Trump Addictions: Symptoms Of The Same Malaise. Just to keep your mind moving. They do appreciate a donation.
  • Amnesty International:  A global movement of more than 3 million supporters, members and activists in more than 150 countries and territories who campaign to end grave abuses of human rights.
  • Denver Woman’s Press Club:  A membership and service organization that has been a support for me for years.
  • Duotrope:  An award-winning writers’ resource listing fiction and poetry publications.
