I am a homemaker and a retired medical transcriptionist. I earned a Masters degree in English from West Chester University and enjoy writing. I also like to knit and play tennis. I reside with my husband in Massachusetts. We have a Maine cottage near Bar Harbor on Frenchman Bay. We alternate between our first house in Massachusetts and our second home in Maine during the spring, summer, and fall. I adore both locations. Many of my articles are written about our cottage in Maine.
