Short Story – Fiction
While living in Brussels, I created a Meetup group for writers called the Brussels Writing Workout Workshop. Four prompts would be given, and attendees would have fifteen minutes to write anything inspired from the prompt. Many of these pieces were written during the Workshop.

Conversations with Real Live Bilinguals
The Conversations with Real Live Bilinguals are a series of interviews I carried out with a number of friends and acquaintanes over many years where I’ve asked them about what it’s like to speak two or more languages, and how that shapes their identity. Always a crowd pleaser!
