Goodreads See my reviews on academic issues and on creative writing.
Bio I am a former professor with an M.A. degree in English literature. I have also earned a living as an editor, managing editor, and business writing consultant. My current focus is on writing short stories. To improve my craft, I have completed creative writing workshops with professor Brian Henry and Masterclasses (online) with authors Joyce Carol Oates, Margaret Atwood, and Neil Gaiman. I have performed and read my stories at venues such as Seneca College, the Tranzac Club, and Wallace GastroPub. I am currently working on a collection of stories about academic life. My goal is to entertain as well as reveal the inequality and injustice in society.
