Though born and raised in Louisiana’s pine-covered uplands, I now call New Orleans home. Mostly so I can make and wear costume-y stuff on a regular basis (Mardi Gras, Halloween, a garden party in June…). When not writing, there’s a good chance I’m transforming materials diverted from landfills into a flamboyant headpiece or a swishy pair of epaulets.
Climate change gives a lot of folks serious anxiety. I'm more optimistic. I know how joyful and beautiful it is to conserve resources by making new things from old things. The stories I share are often about people who are changing the world with creative repurposing.
