I’m a Boston-based writer and consultant. Years ago I wrote an article about the Saturday Evening Girls Club and their pottery for Boston Home magazine. I thought it was such an interesting story in Boston’s history, and I was surprised when I discovered that no one had ever written a novel about it. I’ve always wanted to write fiction, so I decided I should be the one to write about ‘the Girls’.
Like many novels, the road to publication for The Saturday Evening Girls Club has been filled with starts, stops and a bit of serendipity. After putting it on a virtual bookshelf for a couple of years, I took it out, read it with a very clear eye, and realized I still believed in the story and decided to try to find a publishing home for it one last time. It was published by Lake Union Publishing in April 2017 and I couldn’t be more thrilled to finally share it with the world.
I live outside of Boston with my two precocious tween/teen daughters, two idiotic cats and one amazing husband. I like reading, running, cooking and drinking lots of coffee.
My 2nd novel is about a group of Red Cross women in World War II called the Clubmobile Girls. THE BEANTOWN GIRLS will be released on February 5th, 2019!
