SCBWI Profile: Member Profile

I've lived in New England all my life, and my husband and I have raised four children (2 biological and 2 adopted) in New Hampshire. While my heart resides in rural areas (especially at my son's farm), we currently live in Concord, NH with our rescued Australian cattle dog. Since my children are adults, I am thankful to have three granddaughters to fill my life with lots of kid-energy. I've used crutches most of my life, but have still enjoyed skiing, traveling, swimming, kayaking, sailing, horseback riding and lots more. I wish I had more time to pursue music -- singing, drumming and playing my bodhran (Irish drum) -- but family, writing and volunteering for environmental groups is enough to keep me out of trouble.
