People often ask me how the idea of "The Magic of Norumbega" came to me. The answer is this:
I was a resident of Auburndale, MA for many years and became a frequent visitor to the local Norumbega dog park after I adopted a puppy named Geti in 1990.
When I learned the unique history of the park, I knew that Norumbega would make a great setting for a children's story! I began writing "The Magic of Norumbega" for my son Danny. Starring Geti, the story evolved into a fun historical fantasy. It took a long time to finish the book, but that's how it all began.
I have a degree in Elementary Education, and a Master's Degree in Public Administration. Most of my professional life was spent in human services, working with kids and with the elderly. Writing has always been my secret passion. I'm currently a volunteer at a neighborhood library where I'm surrounded by books and by children who love to read as much as I do!
