I am a professional editor, publisher, and author with more than 25 years of experience in the field and as a teacher of English composition, editing, literature, and creative writing.

I earned an MFA in writing from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, an MA in English from Roosevelt University, and a BA in English from the University of Dubuque. I have published more than ten novels, a book of poetry, a play, and dozens of articles and reviews in magazines such as the American Book Review, the Review of Contemporary Fiction, Context, and the Electronic Book Review. I have a book on writing theory called "How to Read" coming out in August from Guide Dog Books. Additionally, as editor and publisher of the Journal of Experimental Fiction and its associated press, JEF Books/Depth Charge Publishing, I have edited and published dozens of internationally known professional writers. I contributed a chapter to SUNY Press's book on Raymond Federman, "Federman's Fictions," and am known as a scholar on the work of Raymond Federman and Kenneth Patchen, on whom I wrote my master's thesis.

I have taught composition, editing, literature, and creative writing at many schools over the last 25 years, including Lake Forest College, DePaul University, the University of Alaska Anchorage, Macon State College, Middle Georgia College, Mt. San Jacinto College, College of DuPage, Elgin Community College, Triton College, Wesleyan College, the Illinois Institute of Art, and DeVry University. I enjoy working with students and pay close attention to detail in order to help them develop their skills.

Vocabulary

Vocabulary

English is a wonderfully absorbent language. It loves neologisms, and it is very comfortable adopting vocabulary from other tongues. English is an inclusive language, and learning its vocabulary is a true pleasure. Examining the etymologies of words, for example, can provide the literary detective with many wonderful surprises.
