Works In Progress

I have several essays sitting on the editorial desk waiting to be consecrated into print, damned into trash bins, or, worse, cast into rewrites.  These essays focus on the world of adolescent mental health, parenting, modern jargon, my parents' words and the complexity of early adulthood. 


Essays in various stages of completion include:

the problem with hope

frienships that don't work

social networking and narrative

crimes against persons/prisoner problem


what it means to be a professor

self help


discipline in degrees


a people's movement
