I am a freelance writer with over seventy publications in playwriting, creative nonfiction, and journalism. I have over ten years of teaching experience at both the high school and college levels. As a faculty member of a high school English Department, I taught critical reading, creative and scholarly writing, and literature. I was also an Adjunct Professor in both the English and Academic Literacy Departments at the Community College of Baltimore County. I not only teach and write professionally, I'm also an editor for literary magazines and judge written and oral language arts contests, including Poetry Out Loud competitions. One of my greatest joys in teaching is that moment a student discovers his or her voice--when he or she knows exactly what to say about a subject and how to say it. I look forward to sharing my knowledge and enthusiasm for writing, reading, and public speaking.

Hobbies

I read and write every day. I love fiction, particularly Southern gothic and Grit Lit themes, but I also read and write about nonfiction on topics as varied as WWII history to biographies of Impressionist painters. I also write and perform plays and original music. I sing and play the ukulele in live theatrical performances and also in various live music venues. Music has a big influence on my writing, drawing my attention to they rhythm and sound of words. I also love to travel and learn about other cultures. Some of the places I've visited--and cycled across--are Vietnam, Nepal, Turkey, Croatia, and Slovenia.
