Welcome to my website. I believe in keeping things simple. I am an Associate Professor of English in the Department of Language and Literature at Glenville State College in West Virginia. My CV is available by request; please use my contact form.
I am also a writer of juvenile nonfiction. You can
learn about my books and read reviews under the Publications tab. Visit my Amazon author page, and visit The Creative Company for a wide variety of beautiful books.
Aji Magazine tolerates me on its editorial staff. Visit this wonderful publication free online.
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.
