I'm a novelist with four novels published, and also a poet with a collection of erotic haiku in print. I have a new novel coming out next year, and am currently writing another.
I have performed at many events and readings and have a background in adult learning, as well as having worked extensively in academia. I have mentored groups and individuals in creative writing, at workshops and in residencies.
