I'm from Massachusetts. I've been a writer, editor, mom, teacher, and college professor, and I currently work at Harvard Business School. I have a large fun furry dog and a cat, a daughter in editing in New York who is 25, a daughter who studied in Philadelphia and Milan who is 22, and a son who is studying at Tufts, in the Boston area, who is 2. They are all amazing kids and they make me proud. The dog and cat ... well, they are a different story. I like to write poetry, exercise, and read. I also enjoy live music, good food, and theatre.
