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. I’ve published several short stories in various magazines, journals and anthologies, and am the author of The Blue Bottle, a middle-grade adventure novel with a female protagonist, published by North Country Press in September 2018.

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’ Tale of Two Cities.
