I was born into a family of educators who instilled in me a love of learning. I earned my Bachelor of Arts degree in English from the University of Massachusetts at Amherst and my Master’s degree in Education from Lesley University in Cambridge, Massachusetts. I taught in the Massachusetts public schools before staying home to raise my boys, now two and five. We currently live in Kenya where homophone games and writing stories about our day are the norm. I am pleased to pass my love of writing on to them as well.
