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 spend much of my time as a caretaker – of home, land, a few animals, gardens, and an ever-growing family – my dream job.  As life allows, I write, carving out stories, essays, and poems, working 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.

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,
