My path as a writer and scientist with a passion for water started with my first career, guiding on the Colorado in Grand Canyon and other Western rivers.
Between boating seasons, I trained as a fluvial geologist (focused on river deposits), then worked for many years as a researcher and science writer/editor. Today I team with writers and scientists on articles, books, and watershed projects.
My writing has been published in Aeon, Brevity, Hakai, Hunger Mountain, More, Orion, The San Francisco Chronicle Magazine, Shenandoah, Sierra, Undark, and many other publications. I’ve won several writing awards and worked in residency at Hedgebrook, The Island Institute, and PLAYA at Summer Lake.
My first novel, ecofiction titled Junction, Utah, won a WILLA Award for original softcover fiction. I’ve just completed my second novel, 49 North, set in Alberta and revolving around crimes and social injustice related to water quality in the far north. Now I’m writing my third novel, Snakelands, the first of a series and set in the misty sloughs of Mayacamas, California.
