About Me

  • I live in Massachusetts, not far from Boston. My home is surrounded by woods, and by wildlife! My animal neighbors include deer, turkeys, beavers, groundhogs, coyotes, turtles, owls, and many different birds. On occasion, a black bear appears. I've even watched a bald eagle fly over my house! 

  • I've been married to my husband, Rick, for 36 years! We met in 9th Grade, and quickly became best friends. We started dating a few years later.

  • Rick and I have three grown children, all of whom live in Massachusetts. Our daughter is a teacher. One son is a software engineer, and the other son is a math professor and researcher. We are extremely proud of them! We get to see them quite often, which makes us very happy!

  • We have one granddaughter, and she is amazing! She is a talented equestrian, and an incredible artist. In fact, she painted the book background for this website! (It's on the Home page.)

  • I love to read! I like many genres: children's books, mysteries, historical fiction, classic literature, memoirs, and poetry. My granddaughter recently convinced me to read her favorite YA fantasy books, and now I love that genre, too!

  • I have three ShihTzus: Tiffany, Fenway, and Paris. Tiffany loves to sit in my lap. Fenway loves to play with toys, and bark at cars. Paris loves to investigate everything, and to be mischievous! I decided to make Paris a character in my Charli series. I'm thankful that Paris doesn't cause quite as much mischief in real life, as she does in my Charli books!

  • I didn't start riding horses until I was 50 years old! At that time, my granddaughter started taking riding lessons. I thought it would be fun for us to ride horses together. So, I started taking riding lessons, too. Before long, I was hooked! I fell in love with a particular horse named Ringo. I bought him, and I ride him almost every day. Ringo and I make a great team! We especially love to canter and jump!
