I cofounded MWS after teaching high school and college English and humanities, and earning my master’s and doctoral degrees in English. To complete my dissertation, I conducted prize-winning research on international archives in Germany and Guatemala and wrote about archival detritus in American literature, beginning with The Scarlet Letter‘s threadbare A.

Today, I specialize in book development for nonfiction, academic, half-ademic (academically rooted but popularly positioned) projects. I work with publishers and authors, providing research, writing, & editing services, and guiding submissions and related processes.

When I’m not working, I’m reading, running, baking, writing…and chasing after/being chased by my children.
