Language shapes the world. On some level, I’ve always known this, even as a four-year-old writing poems about the wind.
The power of words–their power over me and my desire to harness their power–pushed me all the way through a Ph.D. in literature and right into the freelance writing and editing business.
My goal? To help folks use the right words in the right order to tell their most powerful stories.
My publications connect with a crazy range of audiences and are all about authors, storytellers, teaching, and the power of language:
- “Mad Girls: Creativity and Growing Up in Jane Eyre and Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland.”
- Space and Place in The Hunger Games: New Readings of Suzanne Collins’ Trilogy
- “Growing Up Blake in a Potter World: Using Harry Potter to Teach William Blake’s Songs of Innocence and of Experience.” Teaching Harry Potter: Essays on Classroom Wizardry from Elementary School to College. Ed. Valerie Estelle Frankel.
- Winner of 6-word story contest for 2Elizabeths
