I’m a Professor of English and at present Chairman of the Department. I’ve taught English, concentrating on American and African American literature and English Creative Writing since we introduced it as a major in the 1980’s. I am a founding member of the Prairie Art’s Council and a frequent leader of creative writing workshops here and elsewhere.
I supervise the Writing Clinic at SJC and I am the faculty adviser for The Observer.
I’m a short story writer, a poet and a novelist. I won the Hopewell Prize for a story, “Mother Came to Visit Yesterday”; other stories and poems have appeared in a number of journals and on-line sites. My autobiographical novel, Fishing’s No Good Without You came out last year and I’ve two other novels I’m readying for publication.
