I am a parent and English professor who is trying to prioritize my writing again. I write really bad fiction and poetry, but my nonfiction is okay. You know, for a girl.


“Like a dirty French novel, combines the absurd with the vulgar.”



I am a professor, yoga instructor, poet, literary journal editor, hiker, runner, mom, and other things I’d rather not mention–in no particular order.



As a former Goofy-enthusiast, I champion all things that over six feet tall.  I also like shorter things like puppies, kitties, my kids and every friend I’ve ever had.

  1. That is indeed one awesome crew here! For the record, I’m under 6 feet tall, but goofy footed if that matters. :>

  2. Love your blog — really diverse and interesting!

    I love reading this blog, so I nominated your for a Liebster Award. You probably have more than 200 followers, but I still wanted to share it with my friends: http://dexterlanges.wordpress.com/2013/05/19/liebster-nominees-surprise-im-not-dead/

    • Thank you! We actually do not have 200 followers yet. This is our 2nd nomination, but I’ve been too lazy to follow through. I look forward to checking out your blog as well. Thanks again! 🙂
