I realized many years ago that I can do almost everything I want to, I just have to do it over time. So far professionally I've been a caseworker, teacher, professor, real estate broker, education consultant, and policy analyst. I've learned the most, however, from being a parent, wife, partner, and from living in the fringe between two cultures. That's a hard concept to summarize briefly - but it's been important to me to be able to observe and know people from very different parts of our society.
I've written two books about eating disorders in men for which I drew from my experience being married to a man who was anorexic and bulimic, and from training as a researcher. I've also written 3 books and many articles in education. 'Islands of Time' is my 6th book and 1st novel, but not my last, I hope. I;m working on a sequel, and also a book about my British family during World War II.
I received a B.A. from Bennington College in 1965, an M.A. from New York University in 1969, and an Ed.D. from the Boston University School of Education in 1998. I taught anthropology, sociology, and history at schools in Washington, D.C., Connecticut, and Maine; co-founded and run a real estate and construction firm; and worked as a real estate agent in Boston, as an Adjunct Professor at Lesley and Northeastern Universities, and as a policy analyst in education.
