I took a double major (two B.A.s) in English and Religious Studies from the
University of the Pacific in 1968; I followed these with a Master's Degree and
a Doctor of Arts, both in English literature, from the University of Oregon.
Finally,in 1977,I completed my formal education with a Ph.D. in English literature from U.O.

Academic Experience: 

Since 1971, I have taught college-level composition and literature
courses, both full and part-time, at College of the Redwoods, Humboldt State,
University of Oregon, Youngstown State University, Western Washington State,
Sonoma State, and Santa Rosa Junior College.
I am a native northern Californian, born in Oroville and educated
at U.O.P. in Stockton. However, I travelled widely as a child and young person,
living in Alaska, Colorado, Missouri, Germany, and again in San Francisco.
I consider myself a native of Santa Rosa, since I have lived here now for
twenty years, raised my children here, and buried my parents here.

Professional Areas of Interest: 

My doctoral work was on the British Romantic poets, especially on
William Wordsworth, and I continue to be personally and professionally interested in poetry of all kinds, but I am most engaged in teaching
composition at developmental, regular, and advanced levels.
