The Heathen Mommy From Holy Toledo

May 3rd, 2020 - I have been working on a poetry book for a few months now and I found out earlier this week that it will be published by Freethought House. I have a lot of work to do and I am writing my butt off, but I am so excited about sharing my poems. The book is called, The Heathen Mommy From Holy Toledo, and I will probably be posting updates from time to time. I can’t wait to see this project come together.

Recovering without god: a Story of Mental Illness and Hope in a Secular Life

August 20th, 2020 --

I am currently writing a book of essays explaining how being an atheist has been a crucial part of my recovery from schizoaffective disorder. I feel grounded and stable with the clarity that comes from a secular life. Atheism reinforces the insight I have in my illness and symptoms which can be so incredibly important when you've dealt with psychosis.

I will post updates as I continue working on this project.

 

Letters to My Daughter: Lessons Learned from a Secular Childhood

August 20th, 2020 -

I am writing a book that is a collection of letters that are intended for my daughter when she's a young adult. Some of the letters include morals and lessons from a humanist perspective and some are stories of the things she's doing now as a curious and rambunctious four-year-old.

I will post updates as I move forward.
