I started out by writing non-fiction and I continue to do so whenever I can. When in college, I was a reporter for the college newspaper, then was a photographer, later having a column of my own. I have written newspaper articles since then, but none have been published. Mostly now I write for magazines, newsletters, and whatever.
I was a regular contributor to EDS Today, “the newsletter for, by, and about people with Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome”. I began writing them starting in the Fall-Winter 2001 issue. They are now a resource website and no longer doing a newsletter.

Poetry (read at your own risk):
I have recently put online some of my newer poetry. I think that, with age, I have gotten a little better at it. As proof, you can read some of my much, much older (as in about from the 80s) poetry. They are awful and I know it. Read them if you feel brave enough.
