I’m on the far side of…well, never mind. Suffice it to say I’m retired from teaching high school English and psychology, which I loved. Now, I’ve picked up the pace on an activity I didn’t have a lot of time for before: writing.
In the spirit of full disclosure, some of the fiction I wrote back then could have won the Bulwer-Lytton Prize. (That was the author who perfected fiction’s worst first line: “It was a dark and stormy night….”) My poetry from that era is probably still lining the bottom of bird cages. Since then, I’ve published short stories, non-fiction essays, and poetry.
My work has appeared in such publications as Months to Years, Birth anthology, Quality Women’s Fiction, Main Street Rag, GoNOMAD.com, Green Prints: The Weeder’s Digest, and Bellowing Ark. In addition, my essay “Out of the Blue” is in the anthology Dumped: Stories of Women Unfriending Women.
The novels To Know Her (2021) and A Handful of Pearls (2022).
