Annie is a Houston-based freelance writer and experienced writing teacher. She is currently an MFA candidate at Lesley University in Cambridge, Massachusetts. In 2020, she will have a Creative Writing MFA in Nonfiction. Annie’s two major areas of expertise are food and education. She wrote about food for six years on Cupboard Sundries her former food blog. She also taught for eight years in the Houston area tutoring international business professionals in ESL and teaching high school English in the public school system. Writing instruction was her professional concentration, and she trained fellow public school teachers on how to use writing as a tool for learning in all content areas.

Her work experience as bagel shop baker and manager, pantry chef, bartender, and night-shift waitress at Waffle House allows Annie to create compelling food and food industry content. She has written about the cultural and technical aspects of eating fried chicken, the literary and historical roots of Alexandre Dumas’ bouillabaisse from The Count of Monte Cristo, some of the winemakers of Barolo. She’s also cooked, eaten, and written about dozens of recipes, from Irish Tea Brack to Axis Deer Stew. If you are looking for well-researched and informative food writing, Annie can provide it.

The discipline and time management she cultivated over years of teaching, along with her experience in a service-oriented industry, have given her the skills to deliver a top-notch product on time. Annie’s writing has appeared in the anthology Family Stories from the Attic by Hidden Timber Press and will be featured on The Dirty Spoon September, 2018.
