Writing Resource: Words for Light & Dark

I can almost taste summer. Can’t you? It has been such a fabulously stormy winter that I’m looking forward to some sunny days and a writing getaway.

New Release! Writing Workbook & Journal

I’m so pleased to announce the release of my seventh book! I’ve been teaching English for over two decades, so putting together a writing book seemed a natural progression. Many of the charts and reference materials were items I created for my own writing, and have been sharing them with my writer friends for years. They encouraged me to add to what I had, and get it out to the general public. I hope you find it as useful as I have.
