I have been creating for as long as I can remember. I have been a musician, photographer, jeweler, silversmith, potter, quilter, quilt pattern designer, and author. I have been a quilter since 1991. For the past fifteen years, I have been a professional quilt pattern designer, teacher, lecturer, and writer. After a twenty-year career in Mental Health and Social Services, I left full-time work in 2004 and established Something Sew Fine Quilt Design. My patterns sell nationally and Internationally.
I grew up in Cambridge, Massachusetts but have lived in New Hampshire for more than forty years with my husband, Ron. I have spent almost every summer of my life at the “little cabin by the lake” and the small village in New Hampshire where my first novel, “After the Storm,” is set and where part of my second novel, “Sarah’s Quest” is also set. I have spent time exploring parts of northern Arizona, including Flagstaff and the surrounding area where most of “Sarah’s Quest” is set. These are places I know well and love.
I have a BA in Sociology and Anthropology and an M.Ed. in Counseling. I have taken many professional workshops in a wide variety of subjects. My interests include quilting (of course), gardening, landscape design, photography, travel, visiting with my friends and family, and playing with my dog.
