Connie is a writer, comedienne, and would be a femme fatale, which Wikipedia describes as an "archetypal character of literature and art" if only she was inclined to take herself seriously. Since that's out of the question, we're left to contemplate world domination - one word at a time.
She is a Star in the Zona Rosa, a series of writing-and-sisterhood workshops founded by her friend and mentor, the nationally acclaimed author Rosemary Daniell, and a member of Rosemary's Atlanta Zona Rosa Alpha Babes group.Connie holds both an M.F.A. in poetry and an interdisciplinary Ph.D. in literature and women's studies, and her most recent work appears in A Cafe in Space, the acclaimed literary journal of Anaïs Nin. Her more mainstream work appears in Desire: Women Write About Wanting (Seal Press, November 2007).
Her latest novel is Halley's Confidence. Set in Atlanta, it is perfect for every woman who has ever wanted HIM (the Highly Inappropriate Man). Halley is also perfect for a publisher seeking a comedic novel for smart women everywhere.
Her poems have appeared in Kalliope, Hurricane Review, Mad Poets Review, Concrete Wolf, The Griffin, Wild Plum and other literary magazines. Her short story, "Coconut Milk," adapted from her novel manuscript featuring an American heroine's adventures in Malaysia, has appeared in Pearl magazine.
