Welcome to my reading and writing life! For those of you who don’t already know me, I’m a published writer and a professor of creative writing and English literature. I’m the author of numerous fantasy novels and, just to do something completely different, I’m also writing essays about my real life. As my full time job, I’m a professor at Seton Hill University, where I direct their MFA in Writing Popular Fiction.
I’ll be using this platform to reach out to you with my latest publications, things that I’m reading and enjoying, or listening to and enjoying. I read a lot of different genres, and I’m also really into nonfiction that raises my awareness about social justice issues and books that challenge my own conceptions of self. That’s a fancy way of saying self-help. ;-)
I’ll also be talking about writing, how to write, why we write, and ways to keep you motivated in writing. I’ve been teaching creative and academic writing for over ten years, and I’m happy to share my experience as well as my struggles.
