I have been a writer ever since we produced a newsletter for our parents at Girl Scout camp.  I have also been an elementary school teacher, a natural food store proprietor, and a college instructor. Along the way, I raised four children and wrote three books.  How time flies!

I took a break from blogging last December when i moved into my son and daughter-in-law’s home for six months to take care of their new baby. I’m working on three new writing projects right now, a memoir of the decade my husband and I spent homesteading with two small children and no electricity, a novel about child labor in Industrial Britain, and a reflection on the role of grandparents in our society.

These web pages are where I will post my finished work, share peeks at new projects, and connect with you, my reader.  I still teach part time, and occasionally do some consulting and public speaking, but mostly I write, about food, about families, and about grandparents.

On November 27 I begin a month-long trek (using planes, trains, and automobiles) around south and eastern Australia.  My intention is to record my travels here.

I hope you will follow along on my adventure and also take a look at past blog posts and join the conversation.

And invite your friends.stack of books
