About

woman with short silver hair wearing glasses and a black top

I’ve been a singer and songwriter since 1997, and before that and between times, a graphic artist and book illustrator. As I transitioned out of career performing, I began writing non-fiction.

Currently, I am working on a novel and a collection of essays. I also write short fiction and poetry.

My day job is writer and communications assistant at the Cornell University College of Architecture, Art, and Planning. My writing has been published by The Cornell Chronicle, Ezra Magazine, AAP News, and on aap.cornell.edu.

I write essays about music and songwriting, my experiences in nature (including my own nature), small towns, horses, animals, and the weather. In fiction, I explore my theories about why people and things are the way they are (including myself). And other stuff. I live in the country near Ithaca, New York.

I have a photography and design blog, too: sway2this.com

Looking for my music? This is my website. More on CDBaby, iTunes, Amazon, etc.
