Connie Feutz is a psychotherapist by trade and a writer by heart. She has written short stories and essays and is finishing her first novel, a historical novel set on a Missouri farm. Spanning almost one hundred years, the book reveals how women were sharing contraceptive methods in the 19th century (and since time immemorial) and the family tragedy that ensues when a family member attempts to hide a pregnancy that resulted from an incestuous rape. Connie has been published in the Philadelphia Arts Exchange, The Christian Science Monitor, and some small presses. She is PCP’s Community Liaison because she wants the world to know about Paint Creek Press.
