I am a high school English and Creative Writing teacher. I have taught for one decade in local public schools, five years of which primarily served low-socioeconomic students. I enjoy dark literature: Sylvia Plath, Edgar Allan Poe, Charlotte Perkins Gilman. I'm also a fan of true crime anything- podcasts, documentaries, novels, etc. I am a mother to three children, two large dogs, one overweight cat, and a fluctuating population of fish. I am currently working on my master's degree in English, as well.
I'm feeling for routes through a sprawling landscape of documentary fiction and other disciplines such as memoir, history, three-dimensional objects on exhibit, and performance. The broad topics might include diaspora, genocide, mothers and daughters, secrets and lies, and monuments, memories, and memorials.
Evening Street Press is centered on Elizabeth Cady Stanton's 1848 revision of the Declaration of Independence: "that all men -- and women -- are created equal," with equal rights to "life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness." It focuses on the realities of experience, personal and historical, from the most gritty to the most dreamlike, including awareness of the personal and social forces that block or develop the possibilities of this new culture.
