Check out my conversation with Brendan O’Meara of the #CNF Podcast!
We discussed the inspiration behind my latest piece, “Eulogy for an Owl,” (Creative Nonfiction, Fall 2016), and geeked out on environmental science, literary craft, and discovering the emotional core of your story.
I am an East-coaster and a West-coaster. I am an academic and a creative spirit. I am an environmental scientist who always wanted to write, and a writer with a nagging nostalgia for the complexities of environmental science. Above all, I am a mother — so whether I’m writing about the natural world, family, or place, I like to consider my work as environmental advocacy in the broadest sense.
