Writer and teacher by day, mild-mannered pug lover and photographer by night. I like to say I've written about every subject imaginable including the kitchen sink! For the past 12 years, I have worked in a variety of educational settings as a writing instructor specializing in memoir and have taken students through the development of their stories to finished manuscripts. Two years ago, I started a blog, Pugs & Pics , where in addition to my writing and teaching services I showcase my love of photography, art and pugs. I am available to write reviews on books relating to dogs, memoir, and Christianity. I love to read, I love to write and I love to help memoir writers in developing their stories and offering commentary on their manuscripts.
