About the Book

Transfer Please: Short Poetic Vignettes About People In Common Places is my first book, which contains twenty-two short vignettes that inspire readers to pay attention to their surrounding. The book is intended to spark a desire to journal. Each story is an open ended writing prompt that allows the reader to write what they think happens next, or what they feel in response to reading it. I host 'one-day book club' events that allow participants to have a dialogue about the content without having to read the book in advance.
