Growing up, she spent her summers in a small cottage with her parents and three siblings, exploring the woods and fields with the family dogs, wandering along the rocky shore of the New Meadows River, swimming off the rocks, reading anything she could get her hands on, and writing stories at a rickety table located on a screen porch. She has been, in her lifetime, a librarian, a journalist, an actress, an editor, and a teacher. She holds a BA in English and an MFA in Creative Writing from the University of Southern Maine.
