Welcome to my website. I am an associate 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 form. 


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 consider myself an amateur found-object artist. You can see examples of my art under the Artwork tab. I am also a rock and fossil enthusiast, collecting specimens and creating one-of-a-kind gemstone jewelry. Feel free to visit my jewelry site, Sassy Mouse Designs.
