Originally, I created this blog as a model for students in my graduate class on Teaching Writing in the Secondary School, and since I preach that teachers should write with their students, I wanted to do likewise. However, I so enjoyed creating and adding to my blog that I decided to continue it after the class was over and, moreover, take the leap into making it available for the public.
In addition to providing a place to share my thoughts on the books I read, the ways they influence my writing, and their applicability in the classroom, this blog will also be a site to inform more readers about the amazing lives of the women in my biographies as well as a forum for my own creative nonfiction and a repository for all of my hobbies and interests. I welcome all feedback and comments! Below is the view from my desk and easy chair in the loft where I enjoy reading and writing. Life is good!
P.S. Because I am still teaching online and trying to complete my own book, I do not write solicited book reviews at present.
