Twice a teacher, always a writer…

I grew up in Newfoundland where I explored my grandparents’ houses and nearby pine forests. I also made a lot of music.

During my first career in early childhood music education I started a music workshop for 4-7 year-olds!

The theory of multiple intelligences through the arts led me to my second career as a fifth grade teacher in Maplewood, New Jersey. I used the arts in my math, science and social studies classes!

Nowadays I live in Pennsylvania’s Endless Mountains where I happily write picture books, memoir, and historical fiction.
