A lifelong lover of language and former copywriter, I now focus exclusively on editing and creative projects. Recently, I finished a collection of interwoven stories set in my native state of Maine and am now at work on a novel. My short stories and humorous essays have appeared in print and online journals. In addition to writing and editing, I occasionally teach English as a foreign language to adults and have taught university classes in beginning and intermediate French.
