Raised in New Hampshire, I have grown to love and appreciate all five seasons. That's not a typo as many New Englanders will tell you that the fifth season is mud. From a young age I enjoyed writing and telling stories. From Jolly and Bolly's Adventures in fourth grade to feature length screenplays such as The Arrangement and Worthwhile Causes in college; I eventually found my way to novels. In between teaching middle and high school students, I travel up and down the Atlantic seaboard living life and coming up with new ideas. Hopefully my inspiration and observations will continue in Italy and Europe. Most of my books focus on the complexity of human relationships and how we experience and live life. I appreciate writing about realistic events with an understanding that the world is not black or white, nor are the people that live here politically correct and robotic. Contrary to what many are led to believe and taught, we all have stories to share. I hope to share my perspective and apply it in a way that serves in my new young adult book series.
