I started out as a teacher in the Boston Public Schools. After an adventurous two years, I became a reading specialist and worked as a supervisor/teacher at a small private school, The Reading Institute. A move to New York City led to a 25+ year career in education publishing. I’ve been lucky to work on a variety of projects from video scripts to read-alone books and chapter books to PEs, TEs, and workbooks to assessments, assessments, assessments…. I also published two nonfiction books and recently several indies, including a novel, The Secret of Jeanne Baret, about the first woman ever to sail around the world. It took many years of research.
In my free time, I love hiking and hanging out with my husband and our critters (two cats and a bossy chihuahua). Sometimes I do author visits at schools and libraries. And I’m writing another novel.
