I graduated from Boston University with a B.A. in psychology, then moved to NYC to work on Madison Avenue in the marketing research department of one of the largest advertising agencies in the world. Since advertising involves figuring out how to put the right words together to convince people to buy things, and writing books involves figuring out how to put the right words together to make people feel better or learn something or laugh or think or be happy, I decided to leave advertising to write books instead. It was the right choice for me.
I love reading and writing, dogs and bunnies, sailboats, cycling, baking, gardening, children of all shapes and sizes, and blueberries. When I'm not writing or reading, I'm usually digging in the dirt to grow flowers and food, or riding my bike way too far and way too fast!
