Fresh Water: Women Writing on the Great Lakes

What a beautiful tribute this collection is to one of Earth's most remarkable gifts: the Great Lakes. Inspired editor and writer Alison Swan invited women writers with ties to the Great Lakes to contribute essays, poems, and stories. I am so happy and grateful to be in these pages along with Susan Power, Judith Strasser, Stephanie Mills, Annick Smith, and many more.

Selected Works

This "Encounter" with Erik Larson illuminates many crucial aspects of the art of researching and writing creative nonfiction.
It was a thrill to select stories by Christine Sneed, Joe Meno, Achy Obejas, Bayo Ojikutu, Melissa Fraterrigo, James Carpenter, Dave Schultz, and Frank Bergon.
