I’ve published on a wide range of topics (please see my “Scholarly Areas of Interest” page).
If you are a colleague from Collin College or from the wider academic community, feel free to add me on LinkedIn – it’s nice to have a wide circle of fellow educators (I will also gladly add former students).

If you are a fan of my creative works – poetry, plays, short stories, academic articles, etc. – bless you! You can find some of those works at Amazon.com. Both my full length collection of poetry, Pocketing Feathers (Sadie Girl Press), and my college writing handbook, This Is Writing: A Conceptual Guide to College Writing (Fountainhead Press) will be released in Fall 2015.
