My first book – Minna Pegeen – came out in 2011 and my second book – Bedina’s War – came out August 2012. (Both are published by Comfort Publishing.) I am really looking forward to Bedlam Press's release of Perky's Books & Gifts and Whiskey Creek Press's release of The Island Remains this coming year! I’ve been published in over a dozen magazines and newspapers. I wrote a weekly column for veterans for BellaOnline for three years and occasionally find time to post on my blog. Plus, I facilitate a group for writers: Writers for All Seasons.
Over my thirty years as an educator, I have taught elementary, middle, high, and adult schools and in alternative school sites like DJJ and Teen Pregnancy Centers. I’m certified in Early Childhood, Elementary, English for Speakers of Other Languages, Middle School Integrated Curriculum, Gifted, and Journalism. Right now, I am teaching the greatest kids in the world - at Jewett School of the Arts.
