Quote Left My favorite quote is from a t-shirt I saw the summer "Titanic" came out and was all the buzz. It is "The ship sank. Get over it!" I laughed, and I thought that is good advice for all of us when it comes to the past. Quote Right

Biography

Bloggers Photo

I am a New Englander through and through, having lived around Boston as a child, later moving to Connecticut, where I lived until I married. After my husband Douglas returned from Korea, we moved to Troy, NY, and, later, to Syracuse, NY. In 2001 we moved to Martha’s Vineyard, where we had had a summer place for many years

I attended Vassar College and when my children were small, I was graduated from Syracuse University.

Early on, I was Society and Woman’s Page Editor for the New Haven, CT, Journal-Courier and later worked for a public radio station and an advertising agency in Albany, NY, writing radio and television commercials. I also taught school in Marcellus, NY, for many years and received a Teacher of the Year Award. Since the death of my husband I have been living in Omaha, NE, near my daughter. I have one daughter, Jennifer Mattea, and two sons, Douglas, Jr., and Jonathan, and I have eight grandchildren and six great grandchildren,

While living on the Vineyard I was very active in the Pathways Project for the Arts and other writing groups and have published two poetry books, “A Jar of Summer” and “Sing Spring”. Forgotten But Not Gone, my first novel, was also recently published. All are on Amazon and other book outlets.
