I’m a huge francophile,

so I’m always reading two novels—one in English, one in French. (Right now, my French reading is a three-part historical fiction series about the roots of Quebecois rebellions by Louis Caron.)


I don’t like gardening,

so I do only the bare minimum because I do want those fresh tomatoes, lettuce and herbs.


I’m a part-time lifeguard and fitness instructor

at the Concord YMCA. Passing that lifeguard test as a 50-something was one of the hardest things I’ve done!


I love disco

and I make no apologies for it.


I grew up in a family of three daughters

then became the mom of two sons. Yes, that’s taken some figuring out!
