My B.A. is in English and Creative Writing, and I have a Master's in Secondary Education. I am a New York State certified teacher in English 7-12. I have taught for many years at the middle school level. My horror writing has been published in a few anthologies put together by the local writing group I am a part of. I love to read and write horror in my spare time.

A pen or pencil and lots of paper for all of your ideas and writing exercises! Get ready to write!
45 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
Some of the imagery talked about may be scary or disturbing to others. Considering the age group, we will try and keep ideas mostly on paper and in their stories. Other aspects of horror and horror writing will be discussed.
Loves to write, read, and do all things creative!
