A big welcome to you where ever you are in the world. I live with my family and dog near a creek and the ocean in southern Maine. Here, I’ve put together some reading and writing ideas. They’re for you to explore wherever you are connecting from. If you’re reading my books, I also welcome you to ask me questions or connect with me by e-mail and we can explore Skype visits.
