About

the old homestead
Since the time I wrote a mystery story in grade school, I have always wanted to be a writer of children’s books. When I was 7 years old, my life changed forever. I was allowed to cross the street and walk to the local library. I loved to put my nose in a book and become lost in other worlds. Reading and writing brought me great enjoyment.
As a young mother, our family moved from Cape Cod to a small farm in Maine where we homeschooled our three children. We made frequent trips to the library and read books aloud. Although the kids are grown and Nubian goats no longer inhabit our barns, this city girl still enjoys life on the farm. Now I have time to fulfill my life-long dream to write children’s books.
