She is the author of two nonfiction books. Living at the Edge of the World is also available on Kindle and Nook and was adapted theatrically by actress Rachel Morgan (titled "The Most Beautiful High") and mounted for a limited Chicago run. Winnie: My Life in the Institution was made into an NBC-TV Movie of the Week starring Meredith Baxter Birny in the title role and is available for viewing on YouTube. A new revised paperback edition of Winnie was released in 2010. Both books can be ordered from Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Albris and IndieBound and through Book Arts Press at http://www.book-arts-press.com/winnie.html

Currently she is working on a memoir about 1960s life in a three-room apartment in New York's burgeoning East Village with six other aspiring artists, a streetwise seven-year old girl, and a mutt named Queenie. Its working title is Twenty Toothbrushes.
