Mimi Cross is an author, singer, and songwriter, as well as the creator of “Body of Writing,” a practice that adds an additional dimension to the traditional body/mind/spirit discipline of yoga: story. Her debut novel, Before Goodbye, was published in January 2016. Her second novel, Shining Sea, was published several months later. Before becoming an author, Mimi taught music in the public schools, including two years at Forrestdale in Rumson. She loves helping children and adults discover and deepen their creative process. She’s thrilled to be part of Project Write Now. Mimi lives with her young son in Monmouth Beach. Her songs can be found on iTunes.
