I live along the St. Lawrence "River in New York State with my husband, Labrador retriever, Daisy, and cat, Emmy. We have three daughters and at the moment, seven grandchildren. After graduating from Syracuse University, I taught for many years in the Hudson Valley area. During my Childhood, I spent my summers on the St. Lawrence "River.”Recently, my husband and I were fortunate enough to move to this area permanently. We enjoy our life along the river through all four seasons but enjoy it even more when our grandchildren come to Visit us. They call the river “Nana’s river", which was where the idea for this book came from. This is my first book to be published.
