Writer & Editor

As an English teacher, I believe in the transformative power of writing. I also believe that I should model a love of reading and writing for my students. I write both fiction and non-fiction.

Fiction

I am constantly writing fiction—usually YA thrillers. I’ve completed four manuscripts and am always on the lookout for representation!

Non-Fiction

I’ve been writing non-fiction for a long, long time—ever since college, in fact, when I wrote a weekly opinion column for the Bowdoin Orient. My writing about music in particular has been featured in several online publications, including Blogcritics.org (where I wrote about releases from XTC, Scritti Politti, Jason Falkner, and many others) and the now-defunct Kevchino.com (where I wrote about Annie Lennox, John Mayer, Nine Inch Nails, Morrissey, and Michael Penn, to name a few). Now, although most of my non-fiction writing happens in print (see below for details), you can read my blog posts about organizational strategies for students at In Order to Succeed® by clicking here.

Copyediting & Proofreading

efalogo_from_kok_3-28-06I am happy to provide copyediting and proofreading services for any project. My rates, though flexible, run between $45-60USD per hour. I am most familiar with MLA style, but I have also written and published journal articles in both Chicago and APA styles.

(I believe in the serial comma and one space after a period. You have been warned.)
