According to family lore, I taught myself to read at age three. Fond familial exaggeration aside, I can’t imagine my life without books.
Bookish or word-related things I have done at various times include: majoring in English in college; teaching elementary school; doing a five-year training in eurythmy, a movement art that works with the spoken word as well as music; freelance editing and proofreading.
In addition to my main job as a houseparent for developmentally disabled adults, I’ve been editing, designing and producing books for the Waldorf Early Childhood Association of North America since 2007.
I’ve had essays published in Parabola, Interweave Knits, LILIPOH, and the online journals Enchanted Conversation, Cabinet des Fees, Spinning Daily, and The Green Man Review. I’ve also self-published a book about sourdough baking, which you can purchase here (all proceeds go to charity).
I live with my family in the beautiful Monadnock region of New Hampshire, where I enjoy cooking, baking, knitting, spinning, singing, and hiking, as well as reading.
