about

  • grew up in a different time and place - the 50's & 60's in Glens Falls NY - called Home Town USA by LOOK in 1944.
    live with Jon, in Ballston Spa, NY and most mornings wake at 5:00 a.m.to write and begin my meanderings through-out the day, making sense of this world. I like potato chips, long walks, and Belize.

  • retired as a writing and English instructor at Empire State College Center for Distance Learning, a writing instructor at SUNY Adirondack, and as an administrative assistant at the SUNY Administration System.
