If you would like to know more about me and my thoughts on creative writing, please follow the links in the Menu bar to the following sub-headings: Pre-Professional Development Activities, Biography, and On Writing. A separate Manuscript Portfolio (Private, unless access is requested.) provides a brief description of the fiction I’ve written for Children and Young Adults. A link is provided to an excerpt from the text from each story entry located there ; a password is required to access some of these. I hope you’ll enjoy the few writing samples provided, as well as Jennifer DesRoche’s whimsical illustrations accompanying Prince Nicolai and the Empty Box. Thanks for visiting!
