Spring 2017:


Read Cinelle's Literary City Guide to Charleston on Literary Hub.


Summer 2016:


South 85 Journal asked me to write about memoir and mental/stress disorders.  Since the essay's publication, educators, therapists, and memoirists have shared it on Facebook, Twitter, and through their industry networks.  The effect of this essay reminded me that I am not merely called to success or greatness, but to point people to HOPE.  Read "Why I Write Memoir" here.
