If yes, where have you been published?

My published writing thus far is in academia. I was/am a teacher educator, mainly in Arts Education. My chapter in Education in the Arts is titled: Shower Singing and Other Essentials. Another book is This Teaching Life of MIne, based on my Masters Research, looking at the way living one's own prioritise values can prevent disillusion and burnout.

What are you currently working on?
