About meIn addition to writing about my boarding school days in the Sixties on my blog Girls Sent Away, I enjoy writing other personal essays, which I post at RedRoom.com. I'm a freelance magazine writer whose work has appeared in Self, Prevention, Health, Boston Globe Magazine, Boston, Scientific American Presents, Fayetteville (NC) Times, Fayetteville (NC) Observer and other publications.
About my libraryI'm focusing on novels, memoirs, biographies that are set in a boarding school. I'm also interested in abandonment issues, stigma of divorce and much more.
