I am a high school teacher of English and Computer Studies, former archaeologist, an avid reader of literary and science fiction and student of the human condition. Everything I do, watch, read and hear is fodder for my writing. I am passionate about Second Cup lattes, cooking, writing and language, differentiated instruction and ABC’sOnce Upon A Time. In my spare time I experiment with paleo cookery, knit badly, and write. I also bake. Most of the time it doesn’t burn. My family doesn’t seem to mind.
