First book of nonfiction, Tracing the Desire Line, out from Split Lip Press in 2019!

The book, as memoir-in-essays, follows the narrator’s journey as a pirate radio DJ, writer, mother, and organic farmer exploring identity, sexuality, and feminine desire through opening her marriage with her husband. The book looks closely at what happens when the narrator runs the edges of desire by questioning the nature of monogamy and freedom within a conventional marriage. Along the way, the book detours into memory and meditations on various subjects that frame the narrator’s story including music, radio, place, home, rule-breaking, freedom, religion, belonging, forgiveness, divorce, love, and wildness.
