I began my long association with Stanford University in 1973. I was a faculty spouse, a resident fellow, a lecturer in Photography and a member of the community. Through the years I photographed many famous authors as they visited, including many in connection with the Creative Writing Program. Many of the 30 photographed are in this gallery.
In 1983, Marilyn Yalom and I published, WOMEN WRITERS OF THE WEST COAST: Speaking of Their Lives and Careers, Capra Press. We focused on ten authors: Kay Boyle, Judy Grahn, Susan Griffin, Diane Johnson, Maxine Hong Kingston, Ursula, LeGuin, Janet Lewis, Tillie Olsen, Joyce Carol Thomas and Jessamyn West.
“ Writing takes so much determination—you would do it on a rock in the middle of the ocean if you had to.”
