Measure
I want to wish everyone a happy new year.  This time of year, I get reflective, as many of us do. For my special education certification, I see the light at the end of the tunnel. I should be student teaching spring 2015. And I look forward to going to work...

Yearning
Swathe in snug, towel folds Shielding my gaze from reflection Slathering silk lotion Over cream hills and dales and olds Close my eyes, call to mind Smoothness, tautness, band-snapping skin Jutting bones, xylophones Sans purple crosses marring shin Memories...

Time… There’s all those cliché songs about time: Time like a clock, precious Time after time Time keeps on ticking… And at first it seems impossibly far And you fear you’ll never catch up And then you want to hold onto that time But before long it slips awa...

Story
Tagline
"I am what time, circumstance, history, have made of me, certainly, but I am also, much more than that. So are we all." - James Baldwin
Introduction

I write middle grade and YA. I’m member of SCBWI, and I attend conferences, retreats, and workshops to further improve my craft. My short pieces are included in small journals and anthologies. My vignette collection, TIME AND CIRCUMSTANCE, will be published by Vine Leaves Press in 2017. 

I live in Arlington, Massachusetts with my husband, two children, a dog-like cat, and a cat-like dog. For my day job, I work as a special education teacher in a public school, which gives me ample opportunity to observe teens and tweens in their natural habitat.
