Bio

I have a lifelong love of literature and writing. My best subject as I was coming up through school was English. This trend continued in college, and after a few years in a major that didn't suit me I switched to Creative Writing haven't looked back.

I have a lifelong love of literature and writing. My best subject as I was coming up through school was English. This trend continued in college, and after a few years in a major that didn't suit me I switched to Creative Writing haven't looked back. In addition to having an MFA in Creative Writing, I have 20 short stories in print, and have assisted several others with revising and eventually publishing their work.

When I was in college, I worked in the computer labs. At the time, the printers were located behind the lab monitor's desk, so I would have the opportunity to scan (if not actually read) people's work as it printed. What I saw bothered me. A lot of papers were one long run-on paragraph, sentences barely formed if at all, words misspelled even though a spell check program was available... just a horrible mess. I decided then and there to teach people what I could about writing and writing well.

I began writing short fiction when I was 15. One of the things I learned in school was effective writing and revising techniques, learning to emphasize what was important in a story and remove or de-emphasize what wasn't. The same approach can be brought, I believe, to any sort of writing: make and support the points that are important, and leave out what isn't. Part of that as well is solid sentence structure, knowing which order to put the words in along with knowing what words to put in in the first place. I believe I possess the skills to pass this knowledge along to a child and help them communicate effectively in their written reports and essays.

I have an MFA in Creative Writing. A large portion of getting that degree was reading for both language and context. I've spent many hours writing analytical papers of literature and helping others do the same.

I have an MFA in Creative Writing and I specialize in fiction, so I have a good understanding of how the language works. I've spent a great deal of time working with other authors, helping them fine tune their work, and a large portion of that is refining sentence structures and helping them to choose the right word for the right situation.
