I am crazy about writing, parenting, and teaching. These three experiences intersect in my book Writer, Writer, Words on Fire. This book marries my love of writing with my passion as a parent and experience as a teacher.
Throughout my teaching years and well before, I have considered myself a writer. I've had tremendous passion for writing. In 1999, I went back to college to earn an MFA in Creative Writing. I've had work published in literary journals, online and in a national magazine.
It's been my greatest joy to be the mom of a brilliant and successful son who has graduated from college and finds himself in the working world. He is an avid reader and accomplished writer among many other things.
