I was born and raised in the Midwest, but have lived in New England since 1974. One small town in Vermont has been my home for 35 years, and no other place in the world appeals to me more. My husband and I share five hilltop acres with a dozen chickens, two dogs, and two cats. Sugaring (making maple syrup), extensive gardens, and the year-round work associated with heating with wood keep my husband busy while I write.
Vermont is a wonderful place from which to write. Being snowbound is the perfect inspiration for spending lots of time in other worlds of my own invention. And as a lover of history, I find you can’t beat small New England towns, their old buildings, and their feisty old-timers with stories to tell.
Add proximity to the Green Mountains, Boston, and the rocky coast of Maine, and you have the perfect place to live and work.
