A Recovering English Teacher turned Writer


Background Information

After a number of years as a middle school English and history teacher, I decided my life needed to take a different course.  I have always enjoyed writing and have a more than decent imagination.  With my BA in Classical Humanities and my MA in Comparative Literature, I have always enjoyed stories based in myth and fantasy, or in historical events.  I have had ideas bouncing around my mind for many years, but finally this past year (2007) I took the big step and began putting one of them on paper (okay, actually into my computer, but you know what I mean).

If I have any major influences in writers, one of them would have to be J.R.R. Tolkien, particularly his LOTR Trilogy and the prequel books (Silmarillion, et. al.).  I also must tip my hat to Mary Renault and her books based on Greek history and mythology.

Birth Place
San Diego, CA USA
Accomplishments

Several teaching awards.

Additional Information

My current work is a fantasy novel inspired in part by several of my friends on the internet. I also have plans for a novel based on Greek mythology.
