As a teacher of creative writing and Christian liberal arts, I strive to guide my students toward becoming people who seek freedom, truth, and empathy, people comfortable with exploring interesting questions that give their lives meaning and purpose.

One goal and hope I have for my students and for me is that, as Ursula Le Guin writes in “A Few Words to a Young Writer,” our souls will be “stronger, brighter, and deeper” through reading and telling stories.  Consequently, I urge my students toward writing stories and essays that adeptly and beautifully raise interesting, difficult questions pertaining to human life and then explore one or a range of possible answers.

With an MFA in Creative Writing from Goddard College and an MA in English from SUNY at Buffalo (as well as Bachelor’s degrees in Creative Writing, English, and Spanish from Houghton College), my primary genre is fiction.  As part of my MFA graduation requirements, I wrote a novel called Reckless Belief.

My most recent publication, “A Creature of a Different Kingdom” won first place in New Millenium Writings’ fiction competition.  I am currently writing short stories in which complicated people get themselves into (and out of?) all kinds of interesting trouble.

When I’m not writing or teaching, I try to be hiking, gardening, cooking, spending time with my husband and daughter, and – of course – reading.
