Welcome to my site.  I am thrilled that you have stopped by for a visit! I’m a children’s author, poet, wife, mother, librarian and wannabe knitter, not necessarily in that order. I have great fun teaching poetry to all ages. In 2002 I founded the Fine Line Poets, and I have served as a judge for numerous writing contests, including The Sandy, the Mass Book Awards and the Massachusetts State Poetry Society.

  • Beloved Reader

    In many ways the 21st century public library and its role have been re-imagined. In this digital age the library has become much more than a repository for great books. Libraries are promoters of community as well. Take a look at the Morrill Memorial Library events happening in the month of April alone. We have everything ...
