Meet the Author

My life is split. The first part (the majority) was spent as a Professor of Special Education at James Madison University where I trained teachers to work with students with disabilities. I wrote two professional books. I authored "Teaching Reading to Struggling Learners," and co-authored "Academic Success Strategies for Adolescents with Learning Disabilities and ADHD" which has been translated into French and Korean. Upon retirement, I began writing novels which is more taxing intellectually than writing textbooks, and much more fun. There's just no way to include sex scenes in a book on teaching reading! However, the thought of my children reading such scenes is a bit worrisome. I have completed two novels, the first "Dirty Genes" has just been published by the miraculous technology afforded by Smashwords. My second book "Dual Identity" is now available through Smashwords also.
