I am writer, American Sign Language interpreter, librarian, and signing storyteller. I offer tutoring services in both ASL and English, and I work to help my students learn in an interactive, hands-on way - even when it's over the internet. I believe in tailoring my approach to the learning style of the student.
I hold a BA in English from the Catholic University of America, a Master of Library Science from the University of Maryland, College Park, and a Certificate of American Sign Language interpreting from the Community College of Baltimore County. I also hold National Interpreter Certification from the Registry of Interpreters for the Deaf. I have published 18 books for children, teens, and adults. My debut novel, SWORD AND VERSE, was a finalist for the Compton Crook Award.
