About Me

I am a writer, editor, and environmental advocate living in San Francisco. I write about people finding their courage. I am currently writing a novel about the personal and political impacts of the Nicaraguan revolution.

What Would Judith Do? is my blog. It is inspired by the heroine of my historical novel, For You and All of Us, which brings the ancient legend of Judith and Holofernes to life. Sign up to receive a short post in your email once a month or so.  I promise you will learn something–and feel something– in the few minutes it takes to read.

Previously, I ran an environmental organization in Washington DC, completed a doctorate in political science, and worked with indigenous communities throughout the world. I published a book called  Ethnopolitcs in Ecuador that is used in college classrooms.
