What is your genre?

Science Fiction and Fantasy, but I dabble in other areas when given the prompting.

Are you published or unpublished?


Have you ever participated in a workshop?

Yes - I was in an awesome week-long seminar at the Cullman Center at the New York Public Library - some the participants (all teachers) created our own group that lasted for about a year and a half before conflicting schedules finally doomed us.

Who are your favorite writers? What was the last book you read?

Neil Gaiman, R. A. Salvatore, E. E. Knight, J. R. R. Tolkien (I guess anyone who abbreviates their first name) - I am reading "For All Practical Purposes" but it is definitely NOT fiction; I just finished the most recent book by Salvatore and over the summer read Knight's series on dragons (like Watership Down for Fantasy)


Hi I am teacher in NYC, but I live in the Hudson Valley. My old writing group broke up, and I am looking for a new group of writers. I made this clay dragon in Poughkeepsie (sorry I don't have a picture of myself).
