Critical Reviews:

“You don’t write any better than anyone else.  But, boy, can you revise!”—Dr. John Dinan, Professor of English Composition, Central Michigan University, 1989.

“I am impressed with her breadth of interest, her depth of research, her ability to work within guidelines, and her clear style.  She submitted and revised her entries within a tight time frame.  Therefore, I perceive her as conscientious and responsible, a valuable member of a team.”—Dr. Mary DeJong Obuchowski, English Professor at Central Michigan University and member of the editorial board of The Dictionary of Midwestern Literature, 1999.
