To write is to love. To write is to be alive.

My writing is both a love letter to my soul and an extension of my hand and my heart to kindred spirits. I have written 11 books including a renegade tween novella, a collection of essays about leadership, and three technical handbooks for people engaged in community work. 

Right now, I'm working on my dissertation toward a Ph.D. in Organizational Leadership. Through my dissertation, I'm using portraiture to explore how female leaders with/in social movement organizations engage social division as they construct and experience solidarity.

I share my insights, ideas, and preoccupations through two blogs: Jesstopia and The Activist's Muse.
