I am a skilled writer in both creative and professional arenas. I hold a MFA degree from the University of Iowa Writers' Workshop, and I am in the process of completing my first novel. I have had stories published in magazines such as McSweeney's and The Massachusetts Review. Additionally, I worked for six years as a writer/editor for Marzano Research Laboratory, an education-based research company out of Denver, CO. Dr. Marzano and I collaborated as co-authors on a book containing vocabulary games for teachers to use in the classroom, and I was integral to the entire writing process of five books (collectively referred to as The Classroom Strategies Series). I know a lot about the book writing and publishing process. I know a lot about education too. Recently, my boyfriend and I have decided to buy a fifth wheel trailer, move in, and travel all of North America. He is a photographer and we hope to collaborate on both creative and professional pieces. So, if your needs include photos, we may well fit the bill!
