Thank you for stopping by! I have been a freelance writer since 1996. My essays and articles have appeared in all kinds of cool places, like Yahoo! News and Pennsylvania Magazine. My prose and poetry has been in Toe Good Poetry and The Feminine Collective. I am the author of two novels, a novella, several short stories, and one nonfiction book on freelance writing. I'm an MFA and a college English instructor. I love vintage books, old movies, crochet (sometimes, knitting), good coffee, and writing. I'm always writing, which is how you got here in the first place. You followed my words from some other place to here. Thanks for that! I see characters and plots in true stories and everyday people. And if this sounds a little like yourself, make yourself at home here. Share your thoughts and opinions. Your art and your words. Everyone is welcome here, but comments are modified, and if you're a jerk, you're out.
