I just graduated from the Stonecoast Writing Program at the University of Southern Maine with an MFA in Creative Writing/Fiction. Law degree from New England School of Law in Boston, and B.A. from Colby College, Waterville, Maine.
My non-fiction book, "What's Brewing in New England: A Guide to Brewpubs and Microbreweries," was published by Downeast Publications in 1997.
The novel I'm working on now, and I'm hoping to use Nanowrimo to finish it by the end of November, is called No One to Bury.
Set outside Boston, in a brewpub located in a former Catholic church, it features woman brewer Griffin Kane, her bartender brother Riley and the owner, former monk Brother Joe. When Eamon Collins shows up dead in Griffin's fresh batch of Virgin Blonde Ale and Brother Joe is accused of murder, Griffin & Riley set out to find the real killer.
I am trying to stop being a non-practicing attorney doing title searches, and attempting to make my living from my writing. "I am a Writer."
I am a practicing Buddhist in the Gelugpa lineage. My teacher is Lobzang Tsetan Rinpoche who comes to teach here twice a year and who founded the Siddhartha School in Ladakh, India for displaced Tibetan children.
I love the things that keep me sane: yoga, meditation (when I can sit still long enough), being with my kids, especially when we are laughing, which I am great at.
I love also to cook, collect and read cookbooks and am working on my Indian and Japanese dishes.
