I grew up in America in the suburbs of Boston, quite happily, reading, writing, playing outside, and swimming with my parents and three younger siblings. When I got a little older, I went to college (Washington and Lee, BA in English and European History), and a little older still, to grad school (The New School, MFA in Writing for Children).
Now I split my time between Natick, MA and New York City. I have written two children's books, Love, Aubrey and Eight Keys.
My interests include:
Crackers and cheese
Swimming 50 yards with one breath
Collecting dishes that don't match, and a few that do
Wearing a different-colored sock on each foot
Taking out too many books from the library
Planning travels to Europe
Wondering how my desk got so cluttered.
