July 2011: Looking for an outlet for my craving to write, I stumble upon BellaOnline and become accepted as its Literary Fiction editor. I thought I would easily be able to fulfill readers´ expectations of a weekly article, but life had other ideas. Everyone knows an English teacher´s workload is Herculean (and some might say Sisyphean), so what was I thinking? Four years later, I love the fact that my articles can still be read on that site. They are evidence of my history with BellaOnline!
April 2014: I leave the classroom. I am currently in between careers, wondering where my story will take me (or vice versa). Writing is still very much a lure, though, so I´ve found myself back here with a whole new potential audience. Our stories are at once epic and intimate, lengthy and episodic. Ever since the English-speaking world started using the calendar (in 1752), we´ve potentially had 365 stories a year to share. Why? Because every day must be a significant day for someone somewhere in the world. I hope you´ll enjoy reading my retelling of a few of these.
If you have an idea for a topic, feel free to send me your suggestion and set me off on the research for it, which I´ll most likely enjoy doing. The more obscure, the better! Thanks for reading this, and enjoy your time on my site.
