Mountains of the Sound, 
Creased peaks of fresh, white paper,
Blue-ink waves below.

I'm an Ohio Buckeye, transplanted in the Greater Seattle area, which gives me much to write about. The mountains, pines, and Puget Sound are daily inspirations. Back in Ohio, I taught English composition and Spanish at the college level, and I enjoyed it.  As I reflect on my career, I think I probably did as much writing and editing as I did teaching.  Since 2017, I've published works in literary journals and magazines in the United States, Canada, England, and Ireland. I also proofread for Flash Fiction Magazine, and I'm a concept editor for Running Wild Press. With each piece that I write or edit, I enjoy creating engaging and unique stories.
