A memoirist and poet, graphologist, linguist, and singer, I am obsessed with expression—vocal, longhand, and literary. My musings appear domestically and abroad in such publications as Angle, Ducts, and The Old Farmer’s Almanac. As a handwriting analyst I have written for The Bay Weekly and Chesapeake Children Magazine and been featured on Retirement Living TV. My chapbook World Class: Poems from the ESL Classroom has been featured on Delmarva Public Radio, and my current work-in-progress, Reading My Mother’s Diaries: A Memoir in Handwriting Analysis, is nearing completion.

A native New Englander and alumnus of Bennington Writing Seminars, Bates College, and Southern Connecticut State University, I live on the Chesapeake Bay with my husband of thirty-seven years and cat of considerably fewer.
