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!

This recent novel is fun to read and deeply satisfying.

What I’m Seeing and Hearing

You ain’t seen nothin’ until you’ve seen this play.
This one easily passes the Bechdel-Wallace test.
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 the big difference is that some people get pizza.
A rambling meditation on local theater and seizing the moment.
MLK Day service projects put people in touch with their communities. But service is not enough.
