My writing, both fiction and nonfiction, reflects a bone-deep connection to the landscape and people of northern Vermont. I live with my veterinarian husband in a two-century-old farmhouse just a mile from my childhood home. We share our lives with horses, dogs, and chickens.
Some of my recent publications include a feature article in the AWP Writer’s Chronicle, as well as essays in Yankee Magazine and Subject and Strategy: A Writer’s Reader. I am currently working on a novel inspired by true events in 1816 Vermont, a particularly harsh time known as the year without a summer.
My education includes a BA and MA in literature from the University of Vermont, where I am a Senior Lecturer Emerita, and an MFA in Writing from the Vermont College of Fine Arts.
