Away from teaching

When I am not teaching writing and chairing the English Department at IU East, I enjoy traveling with my husband. We especially like Spain and Hawaii, but we are always looking for new places to travel to and learn about other cultures. We are not sure yet where our next adventure will take us.

I also enjoy knitting; I love to knit baby clothes which benefits my junior colleagues and their babies. I always have at least one project underway and I visit my local craft store to buy patterns and yarn quite frequently. I find knitting is great for stress relief.

When I am not knitting, I am often reading. I am addicted to my Kindle and read voraciously. I did not expect to like ebooks, but I do, especially free ones from my local library! I mostly read historical fiction and memoirs. I am also open to recommendations. I just can’t keep up with my list of books I want to read.
