Chicago, IL 60626

I am a 30-plus year career teacher, and former education reporter and investigative journalist for the Southtown Economist in Chicago - now the Daily Southtown. Smiling Box Monster is my first published novel out of three, along with a short story trilogy on my childhood that has yet to see the light of publication - but stay tuned! Please feel free to contact me via email for feedback on my novel, speaking requests, or just to have a conversation about writing and publishing:)
I look forward to hearing from you!
