I’ve taught English composition, technical writing, and literature for more than 20 years. In 2011, I obtained my doctorate from Georgia State University. After that, I published essays in Nineteenth Century Gender Studies and The Explicator, and I have performed several reviews for South Atlantic Review and Choice Reviews Online, a journal which serves academic libraries throughout the United States. As Associate Editor of The Explicator, I appraise essays for potential publication. I have been a full-time instructor at Georgia Northwestern Technical College and at the University of West Georgia and a college dean at several proprietary schools. I enjoy karaoke, exercise, reading, and spending time with Miley the Pug, Bounder the Lab, and Nickleby the Chihuahua.
