Update/Speaking Engagements/New Poem

I am working hard on my memoir and new poetry. I can’t wait to share more with you as the projects come along!

A couple of speaking engagements I had planned needed to be rescheduled. The new dates are:

Dec. 19th — Humanist Community of Silicon Valley
Jan. 23rd — Fellowship of Freethinkers Dallas

My speaking engagements are about my books — poetry and mental health from an atheist perspective. If you have a group that would be interested in a presentation, please let me know!


Here’s a fun new poem I’m working on:


Meant to Be

On this cold December day,
heat radiates where my thighs meet
ignited by your sugar sweet lips.
Can you taste my bliss?

Let your love flow through me
like a river of honey and salt.
I’ll swallow your desire whole
even if you tie me down.

Kiss our future
because we’re ten miles from yesterday
and nipping at the heels of tomorrow.
Move forward from here.

Societal duty or seal of passion?
Put a ring on my finger
and call it a day.
I knew by the end it was meant to be.

Let me fix my lipstick
so we can rejoin the party.
With a pair of gold stilettos
I leave my footprints in the snow.


My poetry book, Free to Roam: Poems from a Heathen Mommy, gives an atheist perspective on being a Midwest Mom. It is for sale on my publisher’s site freethoughthouse.comBarnes & Noble, and Amazon. (Signed copies are available at freethoughthouse.com.)

I am also available for speaking engagements.
