Some stuff about me
I teach English Comp as an adjunct at Bismarck State College, a two-year school with a strong community-technical component. I freaking love teaching! Unfortunately, my health isn't so great, so I'm cutting back a bit; I'll only be teaching one night class this semester.
Last summer I taught a double-time online course, which was cool; I had students in Texas, Arizona and elsewhere. I hope to be teaching another double-time online course starting in March - this time for deployed servicemembers. Something new the school is offering.
I also write a biweekly column of baby boomer humor for the Bismarck Tribune. It's trying to find the lighter side of getting old and features my husband, St. Pete; his evil inner twin, Pedro; my dearly departed mother, the Virgin Joybelle of Jersey; and her namesake, my spoiled cockapoo Joybelle.

I've also written a novel, which is very exciting. After 35 years of writing this and that, I've put 120,000 words together, and they kind of make sense! I'm still looking for an agent, though; I'll be much more excited if/when I actually sell it!
I came to this group via Hank Kellner, after I contributed to his new book, "Write What You See." Congratulations, Hank!
