Author's Bio

I write poetry and creative non-fiction, in particular memoir. I've written about pregnancy loss, spousal illness/caregiving, and my passion for mathematics (and of course other things) I teach math at Arcadia U., and have developed a course called Truth and Beauty: Mathematics in Literature. My books total 27. Other interests: classical piano, singing, thrift-shopping, home-schooling, four grown children and three gran's.
