About


Georgina is a writer and artist who lives in Houston, Texas with her husband and two sons. She graduated with an MA in English and has taught writing for many years: formally at the college level, through Writers in the Schools, and independently as a private tutor. 
She and her husband founded the children's literary zine, Silver Rocket and co-authored the chapbook, Mean Ugly Cat. She reads for Sight into Sound Radio and offers her voice talent for Litopia Pop-Ups. Georgina is also a volunteer at Writespace, a non-profit literary arts organization.
After moving to the states from England, Georgina and her family would vacation in Galveston, Texas each summer. Her dream of owning her own little house by the sea came true years later. The nearby community of Bolivar Peninsula was so different from where she was raised, but she quickly fell in love with the authentic beauty of the landscape and its inhabitants.
Shiny Bits in Between is her love letter to Bolivar Peninsula.

Every year Clementine and her father visited Angangueo to honor her mother. On the mountain top, monarch butterflies hung from Oyamel tree branches, thousands of them in pleated layers like discarded quinceaƱera dresses. During Dia de los Muertos, families gathered and brought picnics and shared stories, memories of their loved ones. She watched them laugh and weep and dance and eat while her father stood silently by her side. Him in his black suit and her in a white dress with ribbons that her niƱera, Maria, insisted she wear—the perfect little daughter. Her father's grief was a silent and endless prayer between himself and God, a conversation she was not a part of. So she waited and watched the butterflies and the families, and wondered what it felt like to be loved. (shiny bits in between, danaus).

Spinning Yarns

I not only spin yarns with words, but also with poodle hair!

A spinning project close to my heart: my friend's poodle hair, which became even more poignant after Gromit passed away (this fur is from his very last haircut). I also spun hair from Rufus' very first haircut.
