I have been a professional writer since 1987. I've written for newspapers, magazines, worked in the book publishing industry, and published novels and non-fiction books. In addition, I've guided numerous authors through the process of independent publishing, and offer workshops in that same vein. I'm the founder of the Parkinson's Comfort Project and over the course of six years, we gathered and gave away over 500 handmade quilts to people with Parkinson's disease.

Gardening in December

As Vermont and Vermonters settle into their winter rhythms, the colors and fragrance of our gardens fades into the pages of seed catalogues with their promise of bounty when spring returns.

But I’m not ready to let go of the flowers and fruit yet so I thought we might enjoy a few moments of joyful bliss together for the month of December.

I hope you enjoy this gardening retrospective.
