About

An English teacher for twenty years, I have taught academic, business, and creative writing to college students and working professionals. My job has taken me all over the world and allowed me to work with and experience different cultures.

I presently run the New England Writers Guild, an organization that teaches writing workshops to help individuals reach their personal and professional goals. I also work as a book coach and help people with what they need most (character development and arcs, sequencing, editing, formatting, querying literary agents, etc.).
