After twenty years as a practicing attorney; initially as an Assistant DA prosecuting criminal cases and then as a Criminal Defense Attorney, Professor Cosmos taught ‘Business Law’ when she was asked to teach a ‘Writing’ course. Teaching undergraduates was her passion, so she returned to graduate school and matriculated with her Masters in Fine Arts – Writing.

Presently, Professor Cosmos teaches English 101 Comp & English 102 Research, as well as Critical Thinking. Her murder mystery manuscript is being ‘pitched’ and the integration of criminal law; writing and critical thinking supports her students’ academic success. She also volunteers at local theaters and has done some critical reviews for New Rep in Watertown and blog for other arts groups.

Professor Cosmos has also taught ‘Mystery & Detective Writers’ ‘Ghosts in Film & Lit’ ‘Spies in Film & Lit’ & ‘American Novels’ ‘Modernism & Post-Modernism’ ‘Comedy in French Literature’ ‘Cybercrime in Society’.
