I have been an avid writer all my life. Creative writing is my favorite genre, but & I also enjoy penning. essays, poetry, short stories. I have been published in newspapers, won a state=wide writing competition for a non-fiction piece, & spent several years doing arts & entertainment pieces & reviews for the Barnstable Patriot as well. A few years back, I took a writing class at CCFA taught by Bronwen Prosser & it was one of the best things I ever did. Learned volumes more about the craft of writing & performed a piece of my own work as was requested of all of us. I have also taken multiple acting courses, (one private, by Bill Bartlett of NYU and another by an accomplished BU drama chair at CP Casting in Boston.
