As a writer, a teacher, and as an editor, I am hoping to connect with kindred spirits through this website. It’s also my way to stay in touch with my students, past and present, and with writing colleagues, agents and editors. I want to know what you are doing, what you are writing and publishing, and wish to keep you informed of my own doings.

NEWS TO SHARE:

My memoir, Only You, was published as a second edition in April 2019 by Brown Posey Press, an imprint of Sunbury Press. The book was originally published in April 2014 by Oak Tree Press.
