TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I wrote a children's novel, The Cellar Door, published by Belltown Press. I have taught elementary school and middle school students the basics of creative writing.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I believe in a hands-on approach to writing. Writing is a practice similar to playing the piano. The more it is practiced, the better the student becomes. I stress the need to separate writing and editing, the importance of "flow" in writing and the not often understood connection to breath. How breath shapes our writing with pauses, the length of lines and the vocal/musical aspect of writing.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

My short stories have appeared in Lalitamba, Out of Line, Pinyon, Short Stories Bimonthly and Exhibition Magazine. My story Perfect was nominated for the Pushcart Prize. Writing Down the Bones Author Natalie Goldberg had this to say about my children’s novel, The Cellar Door: “Beautifully written, rolling, fantastical tale that engages the reader and makes us want to accompany this young boy on his wild and woolly journey.…A terrific read."

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I have studied with a number of writing teachers and participated in a fiction writing group on Bainbridge Island WA for over sixteen years.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I was born in the middle of the United States, middle of the 20th Century, the middle of three boys, in the middle of the night. I have written hundreds of songs, a truckload of short stories, three children’s novels, one adult novel and a handful of poems.
