About Me:
Though I grew up in New York City with European parents, the furthest away I traveled in my youth was Montreal and California. But once I moved to Michigan I started traveling extensively to different provinces in Canada and to France, Belgium, Italy, England, and Germany. I speak French, German, used to know some Swedish and I'm currently studying Dutch. I've been in love with different countries at different times and imagined living there. Right now I have a Flanders crush having been to and written about Bruges and Ghent.
I've published twenty-five books in many genres including a memoir-travelogue titled My Germany. I hold a PhD in English and an MFA in Creative Writing and have been teaching at Michigan State University. I've left to teach writing online at writewithoutborders.com.
