Hello, I am now going into my 4th  Writers Collective course and I still enjoy the classes immensely. In the last 2 years, I’ve also done some workshops and feedback groups with Amsterdam Writing Workshops. I am interested in writing literary fiction, especially in the short story form.

I grew up in the US, in New York State, and have lived in the Netherlands for over 30 years. I am retired now. I  worked in the art world for many years and for 20 years with intellectually-challenged and autistic children and adults. I have also traveled and sailed throughout my life.
