If you’ve alighted on this site thanks to my A-Z dance guide (and editor Joe Brown’s generous plug) in the SF Chronicle, welcome! My website Footnotes went live in July 2004. I use this blog to fill out my coverage of the booming Bay Area dance scene, linking to my Chronicle reviews, writing about casts or performances I don’t cover for the Chronicle, recommending upcoming shows, and pointing out provocative or especially well-written dance stories from other publications. If you like what I do for the Chronicle, you can find more of it, every week, on this site.

In my other life, I write fiction and memoir, and I use this site to shamelessly promote my first book, “The Lost Night: A Daughter’s Search for the Truth of Her Father’s Murder.” You can check out the critical praise for “The Lost Night” here or read an excerpt here. I feel fortunate to live in a city with a busy dance scene and a lively literary world, and I also blog about books and the writing life.
