I am so proud of having completed my book Heartaches and having had it published this year. It was a deeply personal project and now I’m moving on to my next book, my actual full length memoir about the first 25 years of my life – I’ll have to write a second one about the rest later. HA.

I have been writing this memoir since 1998 and it has gone though so many variations and structures and tones but I think what I have now is the best I’ve done with a mixture of comedy and drama I tell the many twists and turns my life has taken. I still have a lot of writing to do and it’s difficult to find the time in between running an architecture and design business, teaching architecture and design to college kids twice a week, remodeling my own home and finding time to travel and spend time with the people I love and of course my pets.

So, I am hoping to have time later this year to work on it diligently and try to get it done before my 45th birthday next June. We will see. I’ve learned not to make grand proclamations and instead just fucking do it. So that’s what I’ll do.
