I currently live in Maine, making occasional trips to England to visit my daughter who lives in London. Originally from Wisconsin, I received my Master's in Landscape Architecture in 1985 from the University of Wisconsin. Following graduation, I initiated economic redevelopment programs in Indiana and Virginia then worked as an urban planning consultant in Florida. G In 1999 I moved back to Wisconsin to care for my sick mother and be near my daughter who was at the University at the time. for five years I owned and operated an antiques shop. In 2005, I sold my business and bought a farm house in rural Georgia to pursue my passion for writing full time. Space at a designer mall in Madison, Georgia and selling pecans from trees on my acreage were financial support. Answering a life-long desire to live in New England, in 2008 I moved to Falmouth, Maine, then more recently to Georgetown.
