I was born in New York City on April 8, 1957.
I have curly hair and glasses. But I do not have a middle name!
I grew up in New York state but now I live in Vermont (my beloved Green Mountain State).
I’m the baby of the family, with one older brother and one older sister.
I don’t have any kids, but I have three amazing nieces and lots of young friends.
My first pet was a beautiful tortoise-shell cat named Jenny.
I’ve been a bookworm since kindergarten and I still love, love, love to read. My favorite authors include Beverly Cleary and Dorothy Canfield Fisher — and of course Betty Miles, my mom, who also wrote books for kids.
