About Me

I’m a writer, editor, and author who lives in a northeastern Massachusetts mill town—the same one that Jack Kerouac was from—with my husband, daughter, and three crazy rescue cats. I love books, traveling, and hiking, and am a huge fan of European crime dramas.

Throughout my career, I’ve worked as an editor for four magazine titles and have written and published hundreds of articles. I was the editor in chief of a local media company for five years.

Several of my short stories have been published in various magazines, journals, and anthologies. My books include The Blue Bottle, a middle-grade adventure with sea monsters, published by North Country Press in September 2018. My second novel, The River Is Everywhere, the coming-of-age story of a Franco-American teenager, will be published on March 14, 2023 by Vine Leave Press.

Some of my favorite books (in no particular order) include Peace Like a River by Leif Enger; The Shipping News by Annie Proulx; Townie by Andre Dubus III; The Girl Who was Saturday Night by Heather O’Neill; Enon by Paul Harding; Thomas Hardy’s Tess of the d’Urbervilles; and Charles Dickens’ A Tale of Two Cities.
