Welcome to my website. I am an assistant professor in the Department of Language and Literature at Glenville State College in West Virginia. My CV is under the About tab, as is my contact button. My GSC students use portions of this site for their classes (they know how to find their stuff). 


I am also a writer of juvenile nonfiction. You can learn about my books and read reviews under the Publications tab. 


Beyond academics and writing, I am a rock and fossil enthusiast who makes gemstone jewelry, and I am an amateur artist who creates found-object art. You can see examples of my art and peruse my jewelry under my Art & Gems tab.
