She got into materials writing in a fairly typical way, by writing the teacher's guides to the second edition of a series she'd taught from and knew well (Business Venture, Barnard & Cady, Oxford University Press, 2000), and from there went on to other solo and co-authored projects, among them New Interchange 3: Video Activity Book and its Teacher's Guide (Cambridge University Press, 2002), College Writing (with Lisa Rumisek, Macmillan Heinemann ELT, 2003), Writing for the Real World 1 (with Roger Barnard, Oxford University Press, 2005), Paragraph Writing (with Carlos Islam, Macmillan Heinemann ELT, 2005), Sentence Writing (Macmillan, 2008) and Get Ready for Business (Macmillan, 2009).

She has also worked as a member of a team of writers on Integrating EFL Standards into Chinese Classroom Settings (TESOL/McGraw-Hill, 2005), and is a regular columnist for TESOL's Essential Teacher magazine and MATSDA's Foliomagazine.

Her professional interests are in materials writing, discourse analysis, grammar and pragmatics.
