Summary
A former English and journalism teacher, I can write, edit, and proofread for clients.
Details
I've had short stories published for Story Quarterly, and articles for magazines and newsletters. I also write play reviews. My memoir, MatchDotBomb, won two 1st-place awards for non-fiction in 2008. And several television stations in Illinois and New York reviewed my memoir. Now I wrote and edited my first novel, BEYOND THE GREEN, and it was published six months ago on Amazon. Rick Kogan, a Chicago Tribune columnist, read my novel before it was published and said it was a fine piece of writing and he told me to put his quote on my novel's back cover, so I did. BEYOND THE GREEN takes place in Chicago in 1998, and most of the characters are of a different age, race, religion, nationality and are either single or married. And many of them also work in unrelated occupations, but they meet for the first time, and then they actually often end up remaining together.
