I have a Ph.D. in Composition and Rhetoric and I teach freshman writing and creative writing at a small, midwestern university.

Day to day, I mostly knit. And read books of great literary merit that are not about vampires and detectives and space travel. I enjoy recreational napping. I walk the dogs twice a day (except today, when we had an ice storm and they’re pouting). And, while doing the above and also while teaching, I strive to listen to the light within, respond to that of God in each person, and walk the Quaker path.
