TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I work professionally in the fiction-writing industry as an editor, writer, and writing coach. I'm passionate about creative writing and run an award-winning writing tip blog at WriteBetterWithAnEditor.com. For years, teachers have used my work in classrooms. Now, I'm creating resources specifically for the classroom! I have taught at conferences, conventions, to college classes, and in churches. People may say I need to get a social life. It'd be easier if my fictional one wasn't so interesting. ;)

MY TEACHING STYLE

If you are looking for fluff to fill time, I'm probably not your gal. If you are looking for real writing techniques and approaches used by pros, then I'm your person ;)
