ABOUT GEORGIA

Growing up on a tiny New England island, the natural world influenced Georgia's every breath.  As a writer and audio journalist, she creates fictions and nonfictions that make complicated subjects accessible to all, especially those they impact. A climate-anxious activist, Georgia is fascinated by the task of surviving and connecting in a troubled world.
