About Me


I’m the author of a memoir, Road Map to Holland (Penguin/NAL, 2008) and the editor of a collection of poems and essays, My Heart’s First Steps (Adams Media, 2004).  Currently, I’m just, well.  I’m tying. 

Here’s another great book I had the good fortune to be a part of, Gifts: Mothers Reflect on How Children with Down Syndrome Enrich Their Lives (Woodbine House, 2016).

I’ve had many adventures as of late, but the grandest continues to be watching (and occasionally helping) my three sons grow into adulthood, despite all the challenges life has thrown them. 

I like: you.  Thank you for reading.
