I’m not sure what the purpose of an “about” page is, since most people who read the blog already know the “about” stuff. But here goes:
I have been a writer of some variety since I was about ten and read Harriet the Spy and fell in love with her journal. Since then, I studied English at King College and later at Virginia Tech, married my high school sweetheart, had three kids (one pregnancy was a twofer), and discovered that I still love to write, and write for an audience.
I teach freshman composition and American literature to college students as a full-time faculty member at New River Community College. After a semester of reading the equivalent of a novel in student prose every two weeks, I long for a place to write where nobody is going to use “there” when they mean “their,” and where I can write about what piques my curiosity, not what I have to write about.
