Research Interests

I have begun writing a book about writing from a non traditional approach. I will continue to conduct more focus groups on a theory I conducted with positive feedback. I plan on moving forward this academic year to pursue and begin writing chapters based on the feedback from the focus groups which will introduce a twist on teaching writing from experiences people have occurred in their lives. The common element will show how consistency in how people lie can parallel traditional writing theories with fewer grammar errors.
