I am a full-time mom of two boys (ages 15 & 10), work as a substitute teacher, a private tutor, and a free lance writer. I have two college degrees (a BA in Psychology & English, an MA in Interdiscplinary Studies. I have taught both public school and college level students. I write articles, essays, and short stories for local newspapers, magazines, and several web sites. I have published a book consisting of a collection of poetry and essays (from my teenage years). I write articles/stories for helium.com and divinecaroline.com.. My long-term goal is to publish a second book about ex-racing greyhounds. We presently have a Jack Russell terrier, named Perry and a Labrador Retriever, named Max.
