I've lived in London, Geneva, Berlin, Boston, and Baltimore, but now make my home on Cape Cod. Was Lifestyles Editor of The Christian Science Monitor, and now write novels. Member of Chatham Writers' Group here.


Background Information

I attended a public Latin school in Baltimore years ago and got interested in writers as diverse as Steinbeck and the local H. L. Mencken, who almost came to my class.  Took a try at a short story contest then in a magazine Mencken and Ogden Nash contributed to—and won—so that put me on the path to writing.

My father's family were from the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia, and I visited an uncle's working farm twice a year for many years.  I had 48 great-aunts and -uncles there when I was young, and I knew all of them.  It was like stepping back into the 19th century.

Then my step-grandmother from my mother's side moved to Tidewater Virginia, a very different kind of place, and I met her brother-in-law, an ancient blacksmith who had been in the Spanish-American War.  So I was back in the 19th century again.  This experience led me to write the novel, "The Smithy Miracles," which won the Indy award and a number of others.  I still love that book.  

Birth Place
Baltimore, MD USA
Accomplishments

"The Smithy Miracles" has gotten great comments on Amazon and, as I say, has won some awards.

Additional Information

I'm working on a prequel and queried quite a few agents, but at present I'm thinking of submitting "Smithy" to a major publisher.
