I was born and raised and educated in Maine, and live in Southern Maine today.
My husband and I have known each other since we were nine years old and although we did not grow up together, have always
been in each other's lives. When we finally smartened up, we decided to get married on the spur of the moment; that was fifteen
years ago, and we're still going strong.
We're the very proud parents of three incredible kids who never cease to alternately amaze and frustrate us.
I began writing when I was very young, I can remember crafting simple stories when I was seven or eight. Living
in the land of Stephen King, Carolyn Chute and even Longfellow, there is no shortage of inspiration here.
When I reached college I took all the literature and history classes I could with an aim toward teaching. I never became
I teacher, but I never stopped writing.
A good friend encouraged me to submit my stories to publishers, and the end result is my being here trying like crazy
to talk about myself without sounding snooty :)
I hope you enjoy my work as much as I've enjoyed creating it.
