About me

Gender Female
Industry Education
Occupation Writer, Educational Consultant
Location Greenville, South Carolina, United States
Introduction Since I was a child I have loved reading and have maintained a journal off and on for more than 30 years. My book, "Teaching the Story: Fiction Writing in Grades 4-8" (Maupin House, 2007) reflects these twin passions of reading and writing. "If you want to write, read!" I am presently writing my first young adult novel, you can find out more under the "Half-Truths" tab. I co-publish the "Talking Story" newsletter with Joyce Hostetter and am a new team member for Write2Ignite.
Interests In addition to writing, teaching writing, and blogging, I love listening to books on CDs, biking or golfing with my husband Creighton, reading and playing with my grandchildren, planting flowers, and eating chocolate. Not necessarily in that order.
Favorite Movies West Side Story, Gone with the Wind.
Favorite Music Classical, bluegrass
Favorite Books Inkheart, Inkspell, Airborne, Al Capone Does My Shirts, To Kill a Mockingbird, The Moves Make the Man, Hiroshima, The Bomb, Grapes of Wrath, The River Between Us, Mudbound

I grew up in Cherry Hill, NJ and moved to Charlotte, NC in 1986 when I married my husband, Creighton. I became step-mother to Leslie and Lindsey and then we had three more daughters: Lisa, Lori, & Lydia. I now have 4 granddaughters and two grandsons-who I love reading books to! My husband and I recently returned to Charlotte after living in Greenville, NC and Greenville, SC.
