Myfanwy Collins


Author's Bio

I was born in Montreal but moved to the Adirondack Mountains in New York when I was still a child. Have since lived in several cities and towns in New England. I have been a waitress, a bartender, a nanny, a chambermaid, a clerk, a high school English teacher, a secretary, a ghost writer, and a traveling worker with the Cirque du Soleil. I have worked in a couple of pioneering hi-tech companies, toiled as an underpaid non-profit worker, and done my time in newspaper marketing and record store promotions.
