Dr. Heise,

I earned a B.A. in journalism at Penn State in 1975. I spent two years at Abington where one of my English instructors was Ellen Furman.

I recently completed an unusual brief memoir. The text is available on academia.edu. If you care to take a look the text is at the following link:

Regards and stay safe!
