essays by Shé


Shé is a longtime swimmer and body-surfer, and finally acknowledged her inner surfista at age 54. 

She first captured national attention as the pink-sweatered-sweetie-turned-werewolf in Howling V: the Rebirth. Ten years later, she leaped back into the conversation with her essay, “Free Love Ain’t,” published in the Seal Press anthology, Wild Child: Girlhoods in the Counterculture (edited by Chelsea Cain, touted by Courtney Love on Oprah).

While living in the Pacific Northwest, Shé hosted The Literary Lounge (a radio program, as well as live events), and launched the Seattle Poetry Festival with Separate: a poetry flotilla. She was awarded residencies at Richard Hugo House in Seattle, Bear Lodge/Devils Tower in Wyoming, and Caldera in Oregon.

Other essays are at prime53: life as a prime number. She posted a weekly serial novel, Letters to Lulu, while living in a Jetta.

Her latest project is Straight to the Ocean: a memoir of homelessness and healing.
