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.
I am constantly writing fiction—usually YA thrillers. I’ve completed four manuscripts and am always on the lookout for representation!
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), I also blog about organizational strategies for students and families at In Order to Succeed®.
I am always looking for new non-fiction topics to explore. If you have great ideas, contact me!

Copyediting & Proofreading
I 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.)
