Confessions of a Stoner
A meeting between a teacher and her adult student results in hilarity and a thorny conflict. What would you do in a similar situation?
I was born in Scotland from a maternal line of Mediterranean Jews (artists, musicians, and a mathematician) and a paternal line of Viking atheists (policemen, gardeners, and a ship captain). After traveling the world on my father’s ship, the family settled in LA (Lower Alabama). At thirteen, I won the 8th grade creative writing contest for a short story about tumbling from the balance beam. After publishing short stories, flash fiction, and memoir pieces including a six word memoir too raunchy to grab first place, I am finishing a collection of short stories in a book titled, “Breasts Don’t Lie.” While I believe truth is stranger than fiction, I like to push the envelope. To support my writing habit, I work as a yoga teacher, massage therapist, and psychotherapist in Raleigh, NC.
