I've been teaching English for over thirty years, both in the US and England, after getting a BA from Vassar and an MA from the Johns Hopkins Writing Seminars. During this time I've acquired an astonishing amount of random information about everything from goat-raising and W.H. Auden's love-life to how to write a sonnet and decipher the symbolism in a medieval religious painting or a Japanese anime to the twists and turns of English grammar. I am happy to share any and all of it.

Undergraduate Degree:

 Vassar College - Bachelors, Drama/Film/Film Criticism

Graduate Degree:

 Johns Hopkins University - Masters, Writing

My hobbies are writing, the internet, the history of forensic science, knitting, etymology, and walking around exploring my neighborhood. I spend some of my time in freelance editing and proofreading, helping people prepare their writing for submission to publishers. I may be one of the only writers in Los Angeles not working on a treatment or a screenplay, but I admit to working on a novel and have had several short stories published."
