Welcome to my site!

I wear many professional hats: writer, teacher, educational consultant, editor, and speaker. And I write in many genres, from children’s fiction to adult nonfiction.

But all of these devotions spin on the single point where writing and teaching meet. I am a writer and a teacher of writing – each role continually informing and shaping the other.

So dive in to my site to discover more. If you have questions, don’t hesitate to contact me.
