Welcome visitors!

On this site I want to introduce you to my books, four stories that capture a piece of Maine history.  In my blog will be a listing of book signing events over the next few months.  I love to visit classrooms, historical societies, libraries, reader’s and writer’s groups, so let me hear from you if you are interested in a talk about the books or how I blend historical realities into a work of fiction.

And to those who have read my works, do let me hear from you with your thoughts or any questions you may have about the true events I write about.

What’s important to me, more than anything, is you, the reader.  I love to hear from my readers. Thank you for visiting the site!

Told in story form for children, this little book is the first product of the Iris Network's public education initiative to increase awareness on the importance of wearing sunglasses. The risk for retinal damage from the sun's rays is greatest in children less than 10 years old, although the consequences do not become apparent until well after they are adults.
