Short Bio

I spent my childhood mucking about in the fields, forests, and swamps around the farm where I grew up in southeastern Massachusetts. As an exchange student in high school, I temporarily traded rural living for city life in Cebu, Philippines. These early experiences set me on my current course exploring nature and culture like the locals. I spent 10 wonderful years as a grade 4 teacher. Now, when I'm not mucking around in the world, I'm usually in my office or local coffee shop weaving these experiences into stories for children.
