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.
