Like Nell, the heroine of the Eleanor Anson trilogy, I’ve recreated myself more than once. I’ve been a project manager, a designer, a living-history interpreter, a costumer, a researcher, and a museum guide. Someone recently called me a dilettante. Fine. I embrace my nature! All of that informs what I do now, so as far as I’m concerned, none of it was a waste of time.
I live in Massachusetts with my husband, two teenage boys, a pair of pirate cats, a goofy Labrador, and a pet Roomba.
