Having begun my writing career as a college student working as an editorial assistant in my university's publications department, I thought I'd found my calling writing and editing alumni articles, brochures, merchandise catalogs, and the faculty/staff newspaper. My career took a course change however when my boss quit to raise her family, and I found myself in a full-time administrative position. Fifteen years and a dozen department changes later I left the university, having worked my way up to business manager in the never-dull physics department, to follow my husband in his job. It was at that time I decided to go after a life-long dream of becoming a teacher. I already had two undergraduate degrees in English, so I earned a secondary teaching license, enabling me to teach English in grades 5 - 12. Eventually I also earned my Master of Arts in Teaching, as well as a certificate in Rhetoric and Composition which allows me to teach college freshman comp. classes. I have taught for 8 years, and believe that teaching is the most rewarding occupation of all. I enjoy spending my days with my "kids" while sharing my passion for writing and literature.
