Bio: Born and raised in Vermont, I love our state except for winter, which I could really do without. Except for Lake Champlain, we are land-locked, so I like to visit the Atlantic regularly. My first novel, Peace Cottage, came out in April 2014, my second, Raising Evangeline, in November 2015, and my third, Vinehart Farm, in April 2016. I'm a librarian by trade, so my life is focused on books. I think this is a good thing! I am bilingual, love languages, and love the sounds of words. I make words up, toss them around and mix them up, and use them as much as I can in my everyday life. How can you not like the word elucidate, or frenzy, or caul?
