Some random bits

I’ve collected 37 stamps in two passports.
Abandoned barns make me sad.
I want Bridget Jones as my flatmate.
I’ve hiked to the bottom of the Grand Canyon and to the top of the Andes
I have a 14-year-old chicken named Mable. She likes to follow me. Sometimes I follow her.
I’d love to live in a kinder world.

Some formal stuff

I’ve written some short stories and they’ve earned some awards but I’m happiest when writing novels.
I also have a few degrees. From Saint Michael’s College, University of Massachusetts at Boston and University of Southern Maine.
When I’m not writing, I help at-risk families gain literacy and citizenship skills.
