What I've Been Up To

My Occupation

Writer, CW Teacher

My Hobbies

um, writing? Helping beginning writers achive publications that are worthwhile. This means steering them AWAY from 'showcases' another name for vanity publishing, almost always linked to a helpful print house who would just LOVE to publish a collection
