Nashville’s Emerging Leaders

The Nashville Chamber of Commerce announced its Emerging Leaders Awards last week, and I had a particular interest in Dominique Gobbell Arrieta, who won in the Architecture, Engineering, and Construction category.


I write a little bit of everything - fiction, nonfiction, and sometimes even poetry. For twenty years I served on the English faculty at Nashville State Community College, where I taught composition, literature, and creative writing. I was editor of the literary magazine, Tetrahedra, for eight years, and it was one of the joys of my career to see student writers get their first opportunity to be published. I earned my B.S. in Education at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, and received my M.A. in English from Austin Peay State University, Clarksville, Tennessee. My home is Nashville, close to my two daughters and their families. I like to play tennis and play the piano. Tuesday nights, I meet with a writers group that I've been in for more years than I will say!

      I am so glad to see your post. I don’t get into my website often enough, and when I do, I have a zillion “Spam” comments to delete. Always, though, I find a gem, as I did with yours! Please keep in touch, and come back to my web site. I’m going to do better about keeping it current!
