Author of women’s fiction, blogger on current events and women’s experience
My life would be simpler if I didn’t care—if I gave little thought to national issues such as elections, equal opportunities for all within our justice system, the disintegration of our environment, women’s reproductive rights.
My life would be simpler if I didn’t care about relationships—if I gave little thought to the man I married when I was twenty-one, my adult children, my grandchildren, to the well-being of friends.
But I do pay attention. I do think about issues and people. And I respond to my thoughts and concerns through writing.
I care about gender equality and women’s safety.
Left: Three generations at the Women’s March, January 21, 2017, in Charlotte, North Carolina. I marched with my daughter and two granddaughters.
In 2018 I marched with a local group and gave a brief speech. Hear my presentation by clicking here on YouTube page.
I care about domestic violence victims, women and men.

I care about human trafficking.
Twice I had the privilege of accompanying my husband to Seoul, ROK, for a semester. Each Wednesday surviving Comfort Women, sexual slaves of the Imperial Japanese Army before and during World War II, along with their supporters, gather in front of the Japanese embassy in Seoul. In 2005 I twice joined them.
Human trafficking isn’t just a problem of the past.
I care about racial justice.
I care about environmental issues.
I care about families of all kinds.
We dare not trust government or corporations to ensure a secure future (safe communities, clean air, clean water) for our children and grandchildren. We must all do what we can.
