    Writing is Magic

    Great literature is life-changing, and luckily, words are still free!

    Whether we are writing a story about monster-fighters or a middle-school melodrama, we are learning how to write clearly and effectively, learning about audience and message and how to be the best storytellers we can be. If writing seems do-able and fun, then school assignments are not as painful or scary.

    My teaching is customized to each student -- strategies may include writing games, graphic novel software, movie clips, classic literature, and sometimes just a goofy hat and a dance.

    For more serious wordsmiths, I offer writing workshops where students submit pages for feedback and group discussion.

    About me: I have been writing ever since I could hold a pencil. I have published dozens of children's books and online stories for major educational publishers like Scholastic, IXL, and McGraw, as well as an adult novel JUST LIKE BEAUTY, a New York Times Notable Book of the Year and movie shooting 2021, produced by Lars Von Trier. A writing tutor for many years, I've also written so many lessons about how to teach writing, I can now do that in my sleep. With almost no snoring!
