I write about memory and how the land, in my case growing up on a farm, influenced my life and my writing even when I’m writing about living in Hawaii or Mexico. I think of myself a see-far woman.

On a Kansas farm, you get used to seeing distances. I’m a thinker and I watch for connections. Often, travel leads me to a new way of seeing and new connections. But it’s all memory and the web memory weaves in our lives.
