I started this blog to track the ups and downs of having a writing life. It has grown to include not only drafts of new work, but also news about events and achievements. Archives of prompts and poems to inspire are archived here for your use.
I live in the Chicago area where I teach middle school language arts and try to convince teenagers that words matter. I love my job – I get to share my love of words with kids, have my summers to write, and get paid for it.
I love Diet Coke, mowing the lawn, massages, live music, photography, running, yoga, dark chocolate, and yoga pants, not necessarily in that order. I have been writing as long as I can remember – I do it because it is a part of me. If you like what you see here, I thank you. Feel free to leave a comment. If you don’t, that’s all right as well. Thanks for stopping by.
