I am a professor of English and Literature, currently teaching for an American university in Heidelberg, Germany. I have published dozens of academic articles, several short stories and personal essays, and edited a collection of essays on African American dance. Two years ago I finished a novel and am actively looking for an agent and eventually a publisher. In the meantime, i am working on another novel based on my great-grandmother's European Grand Tour as well as a collection of short stories. I am a member of the Vermont League of Writers and a local writers' group in Heidelberg. When I'm not writing, I'm teaching, practicing yoga, running, and/or traveling, mostly in Europe. I also teach week-long literature courses in Ireland and Scotland twice a year. I would like to eventually retire from teaching and devote my time to writing.
Interests: reading and writing novels about family dynamics and travel; yoga
