Teen Reluctant Readers

I have worked in the educational writing market for more than 20 years. I am also the author of two series targeting the teen reluctant reader, which is an underserved population. My work has been cited by "The Chronicle of Higher Education".

During the pandemic, I have moved all my works online where they can be read for free.
