About the Writer
The Early Years
I grew up in Charlton, MA. I spent lots of time reading and writing then, too. I got encouragement all through life to do the things I want to do, so I don’t get the benefit of being a tortured artist whom nobody understands.
Colby-Sawyer College, New London, New Hampshire. I majored in English and minored in Writing for Publication.
Lesley University, Cambridge, Massachusetts. I received my Master of Fine Arts in Creative Writing, focusing on Writing for Young People, through Lesley’s low-residency program.
