About me

Location United States
Introduction I’m the kind of gardener who crawls around in the melting snow looking for pink-and-green sprouts pushing up into the light of spring. I’m the same kind of mother: When our family attended a master class given by Yo-Yo Ma, our daughters joyfully watched the cellist; I watched them watch him. I love cooking food that connects us to a memory: My grandparents’ sour cherry tree blooms into my mind every time we pick cherries and bake a pie. The fruit saplings we’re now tending are as much a tribute to my grandparents and their gnarled old tree as an investment in good eating to come. I’m a working writer, which is to say that I am fortunate to help make our homegrown life possible by doing what I love. The constant work of my life, though, is nurturing our daughters and sustaining us on these four green acres.
