Industry Arts
Occupation Writer
Location The Sonoran Desert, United States
Introduction I am a professional writer/starving artist. I read consummately and indiscriminately. I read books to kids in elementary school. I read books for research. I read books to expand my horizons. I reread books I enjoyed as a kid. And, like a mountain climber, sometimes I just read a book because it's there. Feel free to contact me with offers of paying work as a writer, editor, or tutor as well as questions about literature, education, and writing.
