I’m an author, photographer, teacher, gardener and music lover living in South Kingston, Rhode Island with my husband Charley and our two cats, ZuZu and Roxie. My blog posts, which may be found at Around ZuZu’s Barn – Conversations With Kindred Spirits, reflect these interests among other eclectic topics that catch my fancy.
About My Books
A Berkshire Tale is my first published work made up of ten interconnected ZuZu stories. I refer to it as an “adult children’s” book because it’s charmingly nostalgic and fun for kids of all ages. A Berkshire Tale was specially written and illustrated for adults and children to read together. I’m continuing to develop the settings and characters in this book by writing additional ZuZu Tales. The January Tale from the book, The Pacas Are Coming! ZuZu And the Crias, is now available from Amazon and as an e-book.
Carnivore Conundrum is presently in the hands of a talented young illustrator, Zachary Perry (ZPerryDesigns.com). It’s the story, in verse, of a baby pitcher plant, Adonis, who one day wakes up and decides to be a vegetarian. Set at the Roger Williams Botanical Center, it’s being readied for launch on December 2nd and 3rd of this year at the Washington County Center for the Arts here in West Kingston.
Last December, I traveled back to the Berkshires to shoot some photos for ZuZu’s Homecoming – A Christmas Tale which will be out in the Fall of 2018. It is the eleventh in the ZuZu Series set in the lovely Berkshire Hills of Massachusetts.
The finishing touches have been completed on my first in a series of adult mysteries taking place in my own South County neighborhood of Kingston. Last Train to Kingston will be available for purchase on July 9, 2017. The next book in this series, Last Rose on the Vine, is in the processs of being written and is planned for launch in the Spring of 2018.
