I freelance as a writer, editor, instructor, and multimedia consultant. I have a Master of Fine Arts in Writing (Spalding U., Louisville, KY). While there, I served as Editor for The Louisville Review. Along with a B.A. (Rutgers U.) and M.A. in Anthropology (Binghamton U.), I am a graduate of the Institute of Children’s Literature. Not only am I a Vermont Arts Council featured artist, but I also worked as the Council’s catalog Editor for its Art of Action Project. My published work includes fiction, creative non-fiction, literary criticism, journalism, poetry, biography, and photography, having appeared in the Burlington Free Press, Public Republic, Tecumseh Herald, The Times Ink!, The Hinesburg Record, Vermont Catholic Tribune, and League Lines. A sample of my published writing can be viewed at Public Republic, an online literary magazine. Professionally, I am a member of the League of Vermont Writers (having served twice on its Board of Directors), Phi Beta Kappa, SCBWI, and a former member of AWP.

Currently, I am querying literary agents for a historical novel, set in 1856, post-Famine Ireland. I’m also in the midst of writing a young-adult novel, involving time-travel and historical elements (set in Vermont). Other writing projects include: a writing-craft book, a WWII adult novel (set in France), and a collection of linked short stories.
