About me

Occupation writer
Introduction I'm writing a memoir about the generations of women in my family and how we stayed connected, using letters from 1947 to 1990 to support my research. My emphasis is on how each of us defined home and how we coped with conflicts between our expectations and reality. Our choices defined our lives.
