Writer, teacher, eternal optimist
It's true. My results on the Minnesota Multiphasic Personality Inventory indicate it's in my nature to be optimistic, which is a real gift in the tough business of writing. Other things that are true about me: I was born and raised in Great Falls, Montana, and I live in a purple house in Pennsylvania with my family, a Border Jack dog, and a gecko.
When I'm not teaching or writing or parenting or catching up on sleep, I can be found editing creative nonfiction for Atticus Review.
