“We’ll need writers who can remember freedom – poets, visionaries – realists of a larger reality.” ~ Ursula K Le Guin
Stories shape our cultures, and we’ve reached a pivotal point in human history that begs for new archetypes and fresh examples. Our world needs stories of personal adventure and courage that inspire individual growth. We need tales that spur our genius and open our hearts. Above all, we need to learn how to see each other as brothers and sisters.
When we tell new stories about joyous and healthy relationships between equals, we lay the groundwork for a new reality—a reality that favors everyone. When we come together as creative equals, we envision new politics and new business models that serve life, itself.
I am passionate about fiction and believe it has great power to positively guide our world. Rather than writing traditional boy-saves-girl stories, I write girl-saves-herself stories, so that when she meets her perfect other, they can become gloriously more than the sum of their parts. I write modern allegories to help us collectively envision a world in which all of life is sacred, the human spirit is noble, and compassion is humanity’s highest expression.
“Every time we liberate a woman, we liberate a man.” ~ Margaret Mead
