I am a Teacher and Freelance Writer based on the East Coast. I have a BA in English and Secondary Education. In my career as an educator, I specialize in Urban Education and Creative Writing. I am currently working as a Freelance Writer and Blogger.
My professional influences are too numerous to list here but I will give you a brief sampling. I love essayists and novelists who can write a good essay. I love James Thurber, Zora Neale Hurston, and F. Scott Fitzgerald. I adore Dorothy Parker, David Sedaris, and Rachel Carson. I am an eternal devotee of Alice Walker, Toni Morrison, and Maya Angelou.
