about me

zest is a series of little stories of my life.

my livelihood is to swim in stories.

i teach soon-to-be-adults how to read stories, and how to write them, too. sometimes i’m successful, sometimes not.

it took me a long time to realize that i enjoy being a storyteller, but i’m not entirely confident about it. i write purely for love. love for my family, and love for storytelling in general.

i want my kids to read my stories someday.

i love stories about travel.

i love stories about food.

i love stories about how families came to be.

i think that covers it.

  3. writing purely for love…that’s adorable! hope you’re doing well & just dropping you a quick line to say thank you! thank you! thank you! for the shop love. I am so grateful! 🙂

  4. I also used to teach high school English. In fact, I resigned at the end of last school year to be at home with my little boy. I wouldn’t trade it, but I do miss being very in the know about the latest lingo, music, and trends. My students seemed to love filling me in on their world. Enjoy!
