I have taught English and writing courses as a sessional instructor for universities throughout Alberta. My doctoral studies focussed on American literature of the Civil War period. Before getting my PhD, I was a librarian and technical editor with Spar Aerospace, an editor for The Canadian Encyclopedia, and a freelance writer. Currently I am looking for a publisher for two novels and am writing a book of poetry about Alberta’s natural regions.
