I’m happy to announce that Too High to Go to Woodstock: Reflections on my life and times is now available in paperback at Barnes and Noble!

Stupid Schools, Stupid Students: Get Smart

“My friend died…this experience has made me live every moment of your life to the fullest”
“To speak correctly & write papers w/ good grammar I hope will bring me a good wife”

Here are a couple examples from student papers that ask the question: Is it the schools that are stupid or the students? I am happy, questionably, to share the wisdom of students who are being manufactured in the educational factories in America.

My latest book focuses on the lowering of academic standards as witnessed by this author over her 20 years as a Professor of English. With examples of work submitted by students in college level English Classes, I show the type of awful work that is currently considered as acceptable. 

Arguing that the preponderance of standardized testing is one of the primary causes behind this educational decline, I also touch on societal factors, including a decline in personal responsibility. 

There is much to be concerned about, but there are solutions some of which are offered in this book.

Stupid Schools, Stupid Students: Get Smart is available at and will soon be available in paperback.

 Too High to Go to Woodstock: Reflections on my life and times

It has been a joy to write my story and have the opportunity to share with readers the logic that informed my crazy, chaotic life during the era of great bands, music and lively concerts such as the famed 3 days of the Woodstock Festival. I missed it. The 1960s and 70s were an ongoing festival as the sex, drugs and rock ‘n roll continued unabated.

Life has a way of moving along despite ourselves and I am no exception. The 80s brought insights and changes that I couldn’t have imagined and as the century changed, I discovered myself on a different path. Along the twists and turns, recollections from the past remained part of my experience and the melding of the old and new years provided me the memories and insight to put together into a book. Readers can now enter my world, a world that existed both in the middle and on the edge of an incredible era in history.

Too High to Go to Woodstock: Reflections on my life and times is available as an eBook through Amazon and Barnes and Noble.
