Anne Pinkerton My writing often circles around grief, loss, illness, and coping with these painful realities in our lives. Drawn to this work by the sudden death of two of my older brothers — one from an overdose, one from a fall in the mountains of Colorado — as well as the early cancer diagnoses of friends and family members, I write to try to make sense of seemingly senseless occurrences and, most importantly, to help others feel a little less alone in the world.

“Deep grief is the price of admission for deep love. Writing about loss gives us the opportunity to show how love has shaped our life.” — Eleanor Vincent

I grew up in Houston and now live in western Massachusetts with four cats and two dogs. I hold an MFA in creative nonfiction from Bay Path University and studied poetry as an undergrad at Hampshire College. I work as a marketing and communications professional in higher ed.
