Born in Newburyport, Massachusetts, I am a librarian who has worked in both public television and research and development organizations. My short story, The Tannery won the Ellis Literary Award at Indiana University, and my short story, Stick and Strings, published in Mid-American Review, was nominated for a Pushcart Prize. An earlier draft of Puzzle Trees, titled, The Green Apettes, was one of three finalists in a YA contest sponsored by Leapfrog Press. The judges were Alexandria LaFaye (The Keening) and B.B. Wurge (Last Notebook of Leonardo), and I have taken to heart their invaluable suggestions with this new version of my book.

If they give you ruled paper, write the other way.
~ Juan Ramón Jiménez
