Bio

Literature is the way to achieve a wider understanding of the world than is possible otherwise. I have read widely for fifty years and and connected that reading with what the world is and how it works. After achieving a professional ability in several fields and working with all kinds of people it becomes clear that Conrad, Twain, Faulkner, Isak Dinesen and Willa Cather--for instance--are dealing with real people and real issues of human life.

Literature is the way to achieve a wider understanding of the world than is possible otherwise. I have read widely for fifty years and and connected that reading with what the world is and how it works. After achieving a professional ability in several fields and working with all kinds of people it becomes clear that Conrad, Twain, Faulkner, Isak Dinesen and Willa Cather--for instance--are dealing with real people and real issues of human life.

After a life of reading whatever came in arms reach, earning a B.A. in English helped me better understand function and structure, and increased my understanding and therefore my enjoyment of what I read. I worked in the Writing Center at Chico State helping students with their writing and enjoyed it very much. I find discussions of how and why to do things in writing very interesting and I seem to communicate those ideas well.

Separating content from form, understanding the relationships, and putting them together to form forceful writing is both science and art. Taking one aspect, seeing it clearly, polishing it, and putting it together with the rest of a work similarly polished can be learned; this is one of the main interests of my life. Beside the actual work, I take tests well and this too may be discussed in detail.

I have a lifetime of knowledge that I believe I can effectively share. If you are working to achieve a better understanding of what you read and write, let's work together!
