Author's biography

I was born in Preston, West Virginia. Shortly afterwards, my family moved to Flushing, New York, and that’s where I grew up. Though I have spent most of my life in NYC, people tell me that I am a mix of Southern and Northern culture, and I believe they’re right. I prefer to live out of my travel trunks. I have spent time in a number of European and Asian countries, and even managed to take a few trips to Africa. And these were no standard package excursions – I have always preferred to explore each country on my own; that’s how I learned so much about foreign cultures. Of course, I did not escape a stint in academia – first school, then university, finally a graduate degree. In addition to my university courses, I also had a rather important life experience. Rooming with both a Sudanese and Indian girl as my apartment-mates, I absorbed quite a bit of their culture as well, so I can add that to my fund of informal education. Now I am here to help people with their own writing, and – guess what? I am not finished yet with my own learning – it is too exciting to quit. There is so much to explore, and so many people to help with so many writing projects.
