I am a writer and writing instructor with ADHD, which means I have tons of ideas about the thing I love most—writing. I’ve made conference presentations on writing instruction and narrative ethics topics. I’ve also written academic papers on the topic and studied while also practicing as a writing instructor for four years, a freelance writer for 13 years and a dreamer for 39 years. (I’ll post my CV shortly for your perusal.)  (The dreamer part isn’t on there, but my dad and all my grade school teachers can tell you it’s true!) These ideas are aside from my work writing for The Washington Post, Ravishly, Black Girl Nerds, and other publications. I am also shopping around an essay collection that is nearly completed but ready to be considered for publication. Message me if you would like to see the book proposal.

So why am I at Patreon? Well, freelance writing and teaching writing classes are not the path to financial stability. In order to have the time to create the work I love, I come seeking patrons with the offer of my stories and some tools you can use in your writing or in teacher your own students. 

Other stuff to know about me???? Well, I read too much, I am a kick-ass pie baker, and I have a weakness for old fountain pens. I live in a 100 year old house that is bursting with my kids, pets, and hubby. I frequently share stories about us. We are a loud and crazy bunch. My favorite place in the world is the beach three miles from my house. My favorite words are “Nulla Die Sin Linea” or “never a day without a line.”
