My name is Tonia and I live with my family in the Pacific NW in a little old house on a hill in the woods. We call it “Fernwood.”
I’m a writer. I craft stories, essays, and poems, trying to work out the questions as best I can with words. I’m interested in exploring the language of nature, of the soul, in the poetry and prose of human relationship. I also spend much of my time as a caretaker – of home, land, a few animals, gardens, and an ever-growing extended family.
I believe in a slow life, slow craft, in work done with attentiveness and love.
It is my joy to send the words I write here out into the world and trust that they will arrive exactly when and where they are needed. If you have come here to visit, I am grateful, and I hope you will find something lovely or thought-provoking to carry away with you. Thank you for coming. Thank you for reading.
Peace keep you,
