Writing has been one of my passions for as long as I can remember. I'm a professed bibliophile (in case you don't know, it means I LOVE Books) and when I was a child, I would take out of the town library, or weekly bookmobile, as many books at one time that I was allowed. And now, as an adult, I do believe there is no such thing as owning too many books. My dream house includes my own library with wall to wall books! But until I get that library, books can be found in every nook and cranny of my home. And that includes the floor, just about any available table, as well as on actual book shelves.I have a BA in English, no surprise there! Yup, I made that decision based solely on my love of books. I didn't really think about a CAREER! I guess that would have been the wise thing to do, but I thought it was a better choice making the decision based on what I love: books- reading them, writing them, and owning them.

I worked in the computer industry for more years than I was comfortable with but gained over ten years of experience as a technical writer and editor. I've been writing for as long as I can remember when I was first able to hold up a pencil and form words on a piece of paper. The single most important skill I learned in high school was typing and so writing with a keyboard has become a preferred means of recording thoughts. I do, also, love writing with pen and paper but I can simply type faster than I can write with a pen. When I try to write fast my penmanship becomes indecipherable, even to me.

I have written many stories and together with my internet architect husband, Jim Fontaine, we created a publishing website to sell my books  www.BBDPublishing.com.  So far, I have written 5 books; a middle grade book, two children's books, a non-fiction book, and a collection of short stories. I can only hope that you enjoy reading them as much as I enjoyed writing them.

I participated in NaNoWriMo (National Book Writing Month) for the first time in 2019 and am working on a book that will be #6. This is a mystery, my first, and my first adult novel! It is due out the beginning of 2020. I'm also the Organizer for the New Hampshire Writers' Project (NHWP) Writers' Night Out location in Alton in the Lakes Region. There are locations around the state with the headquarters in Manchester at the Ford House on the SNHU campus. 

"I gave my books their own room and now they want the whole house." (a book joke)
