Hi. I’m Darlene. I’ve found I work best with three hats:
writer (green Fedora)
editor (black beret)
teacher (cowgirl hat)
I completed my Master of Fine Arts in creative writing at Goddard College. My thesis was The Divantinum Project, a science fiction story set in a futuristic Earth with three spaceships, sixteen species, and six hundred and seventy-four characters.
My hands-on experience can help writers find inspiration and purpose. My love of adventure and well-traveled boots help readers find new best friends! I’m a humble writer who dreams of living on the bookshelf between Reichs and Riley.
Best wishes for all, and may your writing dreams come true!
Let her know which hat you need her to wear and how she can best help you.

My professional goals are to finish and publish my fifth novel, The Divantinum Project, to teach creative writing for adults, sell the 8,000+ articles, essays, and stories that haunt my computer, and write 100 books in the next forty years. Sounds like a literary life of adventure!
My ultimate goal is to create the Reilley Writer’s Retreat, a sanctuary for creativity and a place where all writers thrive with unique workshops and an inspiring atmosphere.
