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 24, a daughter studying in Milan who is 21, and a son who is studying at Tufts, in the Boston area, who is 19. 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 and theatre.
