After earning my MFA in creative writing, I began a career in writing and publishing. I’ve been an editor and writer for reference book and education publishers, including Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, Scholastic Press, and National Geographic Learning. I’ve written professional profiles and articles for MIT and Radcliffe, as well as graphic novelizations of Greek myths.
On this site I offer observations and links to things I’m reading, hearing, and seeing, as well as to what I’m cooking! as I work on a novel set in Cornwall and London in the 1930s. Current tagline: A house with a history. A woman with a future. Two nations on the brink.
I hope you’ll join me here from time to time, Please comment on my posts!
What I’m Reading

I wouldn’t have wanted to read this book if I’d known what it was about, but I’m glad I did.

What I’m Seeing and Hearing
What I’m Cooking
Every batch of gazpacho is a little different, and every batch is delicious!
An tasty, easy, and dare I say healthy summer meal.
Is it the coffee that made my Costa Rican coffee taste so good? Or the socks?
What I’m Thinking
Maybe some of the nails get bent. You can fix it later. Get it done!
The first Earth Day was over fifty years ago. That government effort remains essential to progress on curbing climate disruption.
Flying is probably the least risky thing I do.
