About Me

I've written everything from essays about cooking disasters to jokes about cows. However, I specialize in a few areas: Education I apply my decades of experience teaching in person, via correspondence, and online to a range of education-related writing tasks. Nonfiction articles & essays: I've written articles about online high school, award-winning adjuncts, the best graduate programs in different areas, my favorite teachers, and other topics. Course Design: I've designed courses for the University of Iowa, the University of Phoenix, and Post University. Course Writing: I worked with a subject matter expert to write a course on hotel management for FYI Online. Assignment Design: I've designed essay assignments and multiple choice questions for WiseWire, nSight, LearningMate, and others. Blogging: I've blogged on different aspects of education for Global Personalized Academics and The Adjunct Advocate. Study Guides: I've written study guides for KnowledgeNotes, Roth Publishing's online database LitfFinder, eNotes, and, most recently, Six Red Marbles/Course Hero. Textbook and Manuscript Review: I've reviewed article, book, and textbook manuscripts for Vernon Press, Career Education Corporation, University of Missouri Press, Longman Publishers, and the journal Science-Fiction Studies. Literature Here I apply my educational background--I have a PhD in English from the University of Iowa--and my experience as a creative writer who has published dozens of stories and poems. Judge: I've served as a judge for the Philip K. Dick Award, and for the Audies (audiobooks). Author Interviews: I've interviewed a number of authors and playwrights. Reviews: I've published hundreds of reviews of stories, poems, audiobooks, novels, and non-fiction books. Essays: I've written essays on a range of authors, books, and topics, though most focus on genre fiction (science fiction, fantasy, horror, detective fiction, etc.)
