I am currently a Ph.D. student in English literature, with a creative writing emphasis. I write fiction, and I currently hold an MFA in my field. I've taught numerous courses in composition, literature, and creative writing at both the college and high school levels.
I have taught as a graduate instructor at the University of Southern Mississippi for four years, a graduate and then adjunct instructor at the University of Mississippi for five years, and I taught in the public schools as a high school English teacher for three years.
