I have a strong education background, having taught college and university biology and environmental education courses for over 20 years. I have also been teaching writers' workshops in crafting and marketing writing, critiquing works and mentoring students of writing at conventions, schools, libraries and writing groups for over 10 years. I am available to speak most anywhere in North America (USA and Canada) and would like to expand into Europe and England. I speak French and German quite well. My recent book about writing Fiction, The Fiction Writer: Get Published, Write Now! has been well received and forms the basis of a workshop curriculum I am giving.
