When I was 9, I won a Mother's Day poem-writing contest. My first thought: "I can't believe no one else entered." Several decades later, I *still* don't know if that's why I won, but now that I'm the published author of 80+ books for children, I do know this: writing creatively is an adventure. It's also a must. If you are going to write at all, write with flair! You would eat a bowl of ice cream as is, but if offered a topping, wouldn't you take it? It makes the experience more delicious for the reader, but also for YOU, the writer. The entertainer! This is not your typical writing session. I make it fun and funny. If you're an avid writer, this is for you. If you're a reluctant writer, same! I've worked with all kinds of kids. Each session will involve lively discussion and mind-blowing tips...you won't want it to end. So let's get started!

I have an MA in teaching English as a second language and am therefore experienced working with students of all ages. I am looking forward to exploring the inspiring world of creative writing with you!

Through a series of writing exercises, reading out loud of written pieces, and discussion, we'll work through finding your unique writer's voice. Topics can range as widely as you'd like, but will also be assigned by me. You can use these techniques for fiction or nonfiction, historical or observational writing. We'll also discuss your audience and the message you're trying to convey. As an award-winning author and long time writer for music publications and other subject and lifestyle blogs, I'll put you on the right path to find total comfort with your writer's voice.

Fun, fun, and more fun! After I get a sense of your genre, plot, setting and characters, I can help you to create an arresting and engrossing short story. If you're a blank slate and you don't know where to start, I can help you brainstorm ideas to get the creative juices flowing. We will work on things like an outline, narrative arc, etc. Let's get started!

Creative writing is all about you and bringing your unique perspectives, ideas, and thoughts to life through writing in a way that nobody else can. Creative writing is about being honest with yourself, finding your voice, and confidently and unapologetically bringing that voice to life. I am here to help push you to that level where you can thrive on your own. In speaking with me, we will take a look at your writing and together, decide the areas you need most help with. Once we have diagnosed the issues you are having or the obstacles you need to overcome we can dive right into the strategies, tactics, and techniques that will separate you from all other writers.
