Why I love teaching at Taylor:
I came to Taylor out of 30 years in the publishing world. I wanted to share with future professional writers the ins and outs of this industry that is constantly changing. I love teaching here because the students in our department are so motivated to be great writers. I am always thrilled to watch what God does with their talents.
Advice to incoming students:
Follow your passions. God implanted in you great desires. Don’t discount the things you love to do, because you love them for a reason. God will take those passions, hone them, target them, and do great things through you with them.
I enjoy used bookstores, reading, my grandkids, my pets (including a few too many cats), and really nice spring days.
