Author's Bio

I teach Creative Writing for the Brevard College Adult Education program, and this is an exciting venture. Challenging adults to bring forth their creaative-self is most rewarding. I have read to hospital patients, womens'groups and groups at our local Arts Center. I was selected by the NCWN to participate in the Writers-in-Residence Program at Peace College, Raleigh, NC and have attended workshops at Iowa Summer Workshops and Tinker Mt.Workshop in Roanoke, VA.
