A basic bio

 A journalist for thirteen years, I went back to graduate school several years ago to reinvent myself as a teacher. And although life in the classroom is fascinating, worthwhile and a bunch of fun, I haven't been able to walk away from Writer-Self completely. (Actually, WS is a stalker. She lurks in the back of my brain all the time, just waiting to pounce on the first minute of free time I have. She's kinda selfish that way.)
