“Gaia Tells All: Confessions of a Global Diety”

First rule for deities? Never divulge your secrets. But Gaia can’t resist telling stories about plans gone wrong, forbidden passions, and her favorite sensual experiences.



I’m thrilled to announce that I’m one of five finalists in the Timpanogos Storytelling Festival’s Timp Tell Event! I will be telling “The Diffendaffer Taffy Cafe.”
