Joined 12 years ago from Massachusetts
I am currently an English teacher and although I do love working with teens, my true "iron string" is writing. I have a BA in English and I earned an MA in English for which I wrote a thesis on William Faulkner. My dream job would be: professional student. Unfortunately, that job doesn't pay well. I crave the intelligent discussion a classroom provides, especially the discussion on literature. I am interested, however, in a wide range of subjects. I enjoy writing non-fiction pieces about fitness, running, sports (professional or amateur), education, history, parenting, and current events.
The fiction I write is often focused on "the human heart in conflict with itself" (to borrow a phrase from Faulkner). I often explore female protagonists who are struggling with themselves, their world, and their place in it.
