Creative Writing

A retired high school English teacher with over 40 years of experience in helping students learn to write, read, and speak effectively, I've also taught a class in journalism and written press releases for the school at which I taught. In addition, I've copy edited and proofread the manuscripts of two mystery novels (A Small and Incidental Murder, Charles Scribner's Sons, 1990 and Death Among the Angels, Charles Scribner's Sons, 1991) and a short story ("The Evil We Do," published in the Mystery Writers of America anthology The Prosecution Rests, Little, Brown and Company, 2009). Now that I've retired from teaching, I'm in the process of launching a freelance career in which I can continue to put to use the skills that I've honed over the years of my career in education.
