Read full description of the books:
The American Civil War may have ended but the tragic loss of one of the Ryan boys still holds heavy in the hearts of his family. Little Cece, born after her big brothers went to war, is a wise and knowing child who adds just the bit of glue her family needs to bind them during the hustle and bustle of rapid growth along the Penobscot River in Maine where bigotry towards native Americans continues to run just beneath the surface of everyday life. Twins, new immigrants from London, bring surprises that turn the static life at Prospect Ferry into unexpected mayhem. Romance, jealousy, brutality, fears, joy and despair mix to affect the family from Fort Knox to Indian Island to Aroostook County. If one dared ask, “What’s next?” Cece would reply, “I not know.”
The final installment in the “Maine at Heart” trilogy, Beneath Mackerel Skies picks up where Granite Hearts left off and circles back to Smytheville where the story began with The Spruce Gum Box. An epic tale, the series spans several generations and decades of life along the rustic and emerging historic coastline of Maine.

Read information about the authorAs a senior that never gave up on her dream of finding time to write a novel, I launched 'The Spruce Gum Box' on my 72nd birthday followed by sequel 'Granite Hearts' on my 74th. The third novel of the trilogy 'Beneath Mackerel Skies' is due summer 2014. The three will be available on kindle as a package - "Maine at Heart". I have been asked if that was part of my bucket list. Hardly. That was the beginning of a new world for me, one that helped me figure out what I wanted to be when I grew up. Whenever an opportunity arises, I spread the word of aging with abandon where age is just a number with a positive attitude.
Throughout the process of writing historical fiction set in the 1800's - State of Maine, I drew upon stories and research of my husband's family in northern Maine along with a varied background in a number of artistic endeavors. I have a BA in Art and Education and have worked as a teacher, designer, colorist, small business owner, photographer and watercolor artist. I believe that bits and pieces of it all, combined with raising my family and an innate appreciation of nature, were all the ingredients needed to write. In process - a "sort-of" memoir named 'Tea Leaf Annie'.
A native of New England, home is now a fabulous senior community in Eastern PA with my Cal, my husband of 55 years, and our cat Smokey.
