As a full-time teacher, I have to juggle my school responsibilities and family time along with my writing life. I'm thankful that I get to write along with my students because it allows me to squeeze in a little writing time during the day, mainly as a creative outlet. One day we're writing haiku, another day we're reading Imagist poets and writing Imagist poems. As for the next big project, whatever it is, it will have to wait until summer!(less)

“A postcard and I'm pining for New England. . .”
Amy Ballard, Landlocked

“It is clear that the books owned the shop rather than the other way about. Everywhere they had run wild and taken possession of their habitat, breeding and multiplying, and clearly lacking any strong hand to keep them down.”
Agatha Christie, The Clocks
