Introduction I'm a writer who writes about people and place and the changes affecting small communities. My first book, the award-winning When Towns Had Teams, was released in the fall of 2005. You can find it at most independent book stores in Maine, or you can purchase it directly from Amazon. My latest book, Moxietown, was released in July, 2008 and has sold out two printings. DownEast Books recently awarded me a contract and will be republishing the book in early 2012.
