Author's Bio

I am a writer of prose -- both fiction and nonfiction -- with a background in freelancing as well as teaching. In addition to the literary prose I write, I am also at work on a book about Flannery O'Connor. My work has appeared in a good number of journals, and I am proud to say that I am the author of two books of general nonfiction.
