"The purpose of art is the gradual, lifelong construction of a state of wonder and serenity." --Glenn Gould
WELCOME TO MY AUTHOR PAGES
From early childhood, when I insisted on integrating the Catholic School Boys' Playground, I've been a feminist. Using my pen, I've written scholarly, mass market books, and articles concerning inequalities of gender, race, and class. This site introduces many of these writings.
Given my interest in women's history, I shifted to writing biographies. I was fascinated by the lives of women connected to noted men. Living near Jack London State Historic Park, I started with London's wife Charmian Kittredge. Then I examined several generations of women in two prominent families: Vanderbilt and Rockefeller. Returning to London, I explored all the women connected to him: mother, stepsister, wives, friends.
My latest book, hitting the shelves and readers this summer is Slanderley: Love and Death in Cornwall. http://tiny.cc/li4vdy
Now I am completing a family history, Gypsy and the Bird Man.
