BOOKS

Readers ask me how come I jump around so much in terms of genres: writing poetry and children's books and stories and novels and essays. I blame my life. Something happens which sends me in a new direction... and the telling requires a different form, rhythm, voice. Like writing A Cafecito Story because of my involvement in our farm in the Dominican Republic. Or writing children's books inspired by the picture books I was using with the kids and adults on the farm who were learning to read. You go where your life takes you and the song comes out of that adventure.

If you want to buy any of these books, follow this link to find your local bookstore at indiebound.org. With each book description in this section you will find links to its various editions at amazon.com, where you can look inside the books as well as buy them. If you have another favorite store, click for more bookstore links. Check The Vermont Book Shop for an autographed book -- or get it personalized. The Middlebury College Store also offers to send you autographed copies of any of my books as long as they are in hard cover.
