A former teacher, reading consultant, and principal, I spent my working years reviewing writing from kindergarten through high school students to educators and administrators. I am also an avid reader of a wide variety of genres. But how can one appreciate the craft that goes into compelling writing? By doing some of one's own writing, of course. I also love to write. However, my writing choice are short essays. I am in awe of anyone that takes on the task of writing a book. I look forward to the opportunity to read and review new authors, new books, new genres.
