A former high school English teacher and editor, she is working on new writing projects from her home in West Michigan, where she enjoys woods, water, pets, and family.

  Medusa, a Memoir
  Self-published in December 2019

Medusa Natalie Print.jpg

In Greek mythology, Medusa is a gorgon who turns people into stone when they dare to look at her. She represents the secret about yourself you cannot face without fear. In my novel Medusa, the image of Medusa haunts Meridith MacLeod as she struggles with frightening cancer diagnoses in her childhood and adulthood.  Journey with Meredith as she travels through the depths of her life and back to the surface, a happier, whole person.



A moving and engaging page-turner that draws on an impressive breath of literary, philosophical, and religious works to illuminate the protagonist's life.   Bill Steinmetz
