I am …

A writer of novels, memoirs, screenplays, comic scripts.
An artist on paper and on the computer.
A reader of books and graphic novels.
A film maker and editor.

I have a Bachelors of Arts in Creative Writing with a minor in Mass Communications. I specialize in fiction prose writing, screenplays, and scripts for graphic stories such as comics. I studied film and film theory. Additionally I got a footing in graphic design.

I received my Masters of Arts in Children’s Literature. My education provides me with a broad and rich perspective of culture and the writing of children’s, juvenile, and young adult stories. I have expertise in the analysis of visuals including anything from picture books to graphic novels. While I did continue to master writing, much of my masters education focused on the visual aspects of literature and how images invoke feeling as well as tell a story.
