North of Boston

Reader & Writer


I like to read. I love to write. I garden. Laughing is at the top of my list too. I am a big fan of words in any format. After starting a family, over a decade ago, I decided two years ago to get back to devoting stolen moments to writing. I write poetry, children's picture books, YA, website & blog content along with loads of random, unplanned or sometimes completely intentional writing. Currently I am the Director of the nonprofit The Room to Write which supports writers north of Boston and works to spread the love of words to people of all ages and abilities.
