    I have been writing most of my life in some form or other. But it was years before I was actually published–1998, to be exact. I owe that to the thoughtful generosity of a former professor: Dr. Dianne Johnson (see her books under the name Dinah Johnson). She read some of my work, liked it, and gave me the name of two editors to contact using her name as a reference. That opened the door to the fulfillment of my dreams. I can never repay her.

    Since that time, I’ve been writing, publishing a little, teaching a lot, and reading everything I can get my hands on. I love reading, and I have a wide range of interests: fiction, nonfiction, memoir, children’s lit, YA lit, adult lit….you name it, and I’ve most likely read some of it. I suppose that can be a good thing, or not….I don’t know where I fit in the publishing business. I haven’t stuck to one genre. I don’t really have a niche. I like it all. So, how do I market myself? Well, I don’t…until now. I suppose that is the purpose of this blog: to put stuff out there and get feedback, and hopefully (?), I’ll find my box.

    I am starting this blog for two other reasons: First, knowing it’s sitting out there in cyber space motivates me to fill it up with something.Second, I want feedback, so if you’re reading this, please read some of the blogs, and send me your comments. I’m always learning.

    And I’m usually teaching, either in my high school classes or in writing workshops at community college campuses. Teaching inspires me, and I do feel the obligation to “pass it forward”==”it” being what knowledge and assistance I have and can offer to others seeking their dreams. And I invariably learn so much from my students, many of whom have become good friends.

    Writing can be a lonely business. I like my own company, but find it necessary to reach out to the writing community if I want to stay connected and up to date on the goings on of the publishing world and, on the likes and dislikes of readers. So write me. Talk to me. Ask me questions. I’ll be right here.
