About Me

by Anna

If I could be anyone, would I still be me?

Probably, but if I could be one third Pablo Neruda, I’d like being me better.

Being a writer is what I declared I wanted to be when I was a five-year-old kid, either that or something else.  I did that something else first, and even though it allowed me to do a lot of writing, it was never a perfect fit, so now I just write.

When I think back to me at five, I’m still surprised I knew what I’d be when I grew up.

As a writer, I look forward to every day and every new project. When I’m not writing, I’m thinking about writing.  I’ll write almost anything. In my spare time,  I’m working on a novel and compiling a collection of poetry for publication.

I created this site to share some of my work that’s been published elsewhere and to share a blog where I can write about the things I’ve learned and the things on my mind. I write at Medium a lot too – I love that site.

My writing is influenced by my Buddhist beliefs, my love of magical realism, John O’Donohue, and being a woman in the world. There’s more to it than that, it’s a mix-tape with too many songs to list. I’m a Gen-Xer and the unique experiences of my generation are reflected in my writing. I have some nihilistic tendencies. I like unhappy endings and unlikeable characters. From time to time they show up in what I write. I also have a strong optimistic side that shows up frequently as well.

If you’d like to drop me a note, please use the contact form at this site.

If you’d like to read more from me, subscribe to my newsletter, Bright Moon. I share my updates on my writing, and I share a curated collection of some of the beautiful art and writing I have discovered across on the internet.

You can also follow me on Twitter, PinterestInstagram, and Medium.
