I was so swept away with this wise and moving book, EMOTIONAL INHERITANCE: A Therapist, her Patients, and the Legacy of Trauma (Little, Brown Spark, January 2022).
Come on over, eavesdrop on our conversation.
This interview originally appeared in Hippocampus Magazine February 2022.
After nearly a decade of bringing great authors and their books right here, every Wednesday, I am shifting my focus a bit.
It’s been a joy and privilege to connect with authors and share interviews with you.
You can find all of my bookish suggestions, reviews, and more on Instagram in 2022, where I’ll be sharing reels and blurbs about books, what I’m reading, and even writing.
Psst! You can share this on Twitter, too.Tweet

MODEL HOME: Motherhood, Madness & Memory is ‘making the rounds’ with publishing houses. This book has been in my heart for years. It’s about my mother’s devolve into psychosis when I was 10; the body, mind, houses and homes (she was an interior decorator), our estrangement, breaking the cycle, her suicide, my complex grief.
It’s time for this story to make its way into the world.

I’m grateful for this essay with Read Her Like an Open Book, which goes into some detail about the authors I’ve hosted over the years as well as my writerly journey. You might like this post I shared in December 2021 about an end-of-an-era
Occasionally, I’ll have an author interview published in a literary journal. I’ll be sure to share that with you, too.
Here are a couple to whet your appetite:
- In conversation with Dr. Galit Atlas, author of EMOTIONAL INHERITANCE (Little, Brown Spark, January 25 2022), Hippocampus Magazine
- “A Conversation with Donald Antrim, author of ONE FRIDAY IN APRIL: A Story of Suicide & Survival, Hippocampus Magazine.
- “A Conversation with Laraine Herring, author of A CONSTELLATION OF GHOSTS: A Speculative Memoir,” Hippocampus Magazine.
- Coming soon: Siri Hustvedt chats with me about her newest book, MOTHERS, FATHERS & OTHERS: Essays (December 2021, Simon & Schuster) in The Rumpus.
I’ll be sharing my published interviews here, on Wednesdays, after they’ve ‘gone live’ with their various publications. On Fridays, I’ll share any recent published fiction on this space as well.
I’m hard at work on the next book. It’s about ancestors and generations, how we’re all connected through land and home. I’m also applying to residencies, conferences, taking workshops, and classes.
In the meantime, catch me on:
Reviewing books and talking about them with others on-line and in-person is one small way to engage with & support the literary community.
It’s been a joy and privilege to connect with authors and share interviews with you. Thank you for letting me guide you on your bookish journey.
