When I got the invitation from AARP to join their organization, I ripped the letter up and bought a motorcycle.
I was a high school dropout at 16, a college grad at 20, a single mom at 30. I’ve been a cook for a baroque orchestra, a sculptor’s assistant, an event organizer, an SEO ‘expert,’ and a yoga teacher. I started (and stopped three years later) my own welding shop. I have repaired farm equipment under the blazing sun on the Fourth of July and decorated cakes baked to resemble the Palace of Versailles on Bastille Day.
Writing has been the foundation of each of these roles. Today I write professional bios and resumes. I also blog weekly for an organization that supports college students with learning differences. I have often played Sancho Panza to someone else’s Don Quixote. But now that my Rocinante has two wheels, I take on the windmills myself.
I love motorcycling, camping, and kayaking with whales. I live, write, and ride in Hinesburg, Vermont with my husband John who is a yoga teacher and our dog Dewey, who is also a yoga teacher.
