It’s Mother’s Day. It’s sunny and warm and breezy here. I’m going out to dinner at my favorite restaurant with my husband and my mother and my beautiful daughter. Things don’t get much better than this. I have good reason to celebrate this special day!
I worked as an elementary school teacher for more than three decades and as a school librarian for three years. I also taught a children's literature course at Boston University from 2002-2008. I served on the advisory board of the Keene State College Children’s Literature Festival from 2006-2008 and as a member of the NCTE Poetry Committee from 2009-2012. I am now retired and write poetry for children. "Things to Do," my first children's book, will be published by Chronicle Books in February of 2017.
