I’m a Midwestern writer and editor who has worked in journalism and public relations and now I work on my own projects, with an emphasis on creative writing. I decided the day I got my library card that I wanted to be a writer and I feel like I’m finally doing that.
I also enjoy reading and reviewing fiction and non-fiction, as well as writing mysteries, poetry and plays. And I like to take pictures (and I’m posting more of my own). I’ve won awards for my work in journalism, poetry and academic writing. I’ve taught journalism, English composition and sociology at midwestern colleges and universities. I’ve also volunteered my skills to various groups over the years, especially to help with newsletters and desktop publishing.
