Teaching Style

I Am Happy to Work with Students in the Following Genres/Areas:
Middle grade and YA novels of any genre as the primary focus. I am also happy to read and critique other forms if the student is suddenly inspired to veer off from the novel during the course of the semester.

Other Things to Know About Me as an Advisor:
I work primarily via email; phone consultations are always possible when arranged first via email. I prefer email submissions of monthly packets.

Books of Mine I Recommend That You Read:
Come in from the Cold, Too Big Storm, Just Like That.
