I have invested a lot of time and education in careers that are less than lucrative, but have made me happy. I have been a Theatrical Producer, a Children’s Librarian, Theatre Teacher, and Freelance Writer. I spent a year as a full-time theatre teacher and now I am certified for Theatre and English and Social Studies. I am now working as a full-time teacher teaching English and Science. I am also certified to teach Math and Social studies for grades 4-8
I fully acknowledge that I am an adult, but I don’t really want to be a grown-up
I have a cat, Samantha, who is in the constant pursuit of the elusive red spot that chases her up and down the hall. I now play host to Frances, an energetic Ginger cat who officially belongs to Batman, but acknowledges that I handle most of the cat chores.
I have an assortment of Fabricated Americans who serve as comfort and support and occasionally as helaing totems.
My personal life is complicated which tends to compromise my cherub-like demeanor. The best drama in my life comes from the success of my protege, best student, and honorary Son, Actor Boy, Dustin Kane Nolen. He is now gracing the airwaves in the Four Corners region. I also have discovered, largely through the efforts of S. Lamar Wilson, AKA Batman, that I am no longer dead inside.
