Graveyard of Safe Choices
About the memoir
Graveyard of Safe Choices takes us inside one woman’s midlife journey as she learns to listen to the voice deep inside each of us, calling us to our authentic self. This is the story about finding the courage to break the container you’ve carefully curated in your first half of life and creating a new one that allows you to live personally and professionally with your arms wide open. It is the story of weighing the costs of authenticity and becoming brave at any age.
Graveyard of Safe Choices is for every woman wondering if it’s worth listening to her inner voice. The answer is a resounding yes. Borrowing from Glennon Doyle, the journey may be “brutiful,” but the rewards of living authentically are worth the cost.
My manuscript and book proposal are complete, and I am deep in the query trenches. Stayed tuned for updates!
About the anthology
I'm thrilled to announce that my essay "Questions I Wish I Could Answer," will be published in Passed On: Daughters Write About Father Loss, Lack, and Legacy, an anthology forthcoming from the University of Georgia Press, edited by anthropologist, author, and book coaching colleague, Amy Goldmacher. My essay gave me the opportunity to revisit some pieces I wrote about my late father shortly after his death in 2011, now with the benefit of more perspective and distance.
