Read full description of the books:



The stories in this anthology illustrate many of the qualities of the wise woman, offering readers of all ages a new perspective on the grandmother character that is usually presented in fairy tales as either menacingly evil or dim-witted and useless. With spirited grandmothers from as far afield as Senegal and Sweden, all of these tales are rich with humor, action and suspense. A fresh and witty retelling is complemented by finely detailed and mesmerizing illustrations.

About Me

I have always loved words.

When I was eight, I began collecting words and categorizing them into word lists: night words, flight words, colors, feelings, places, well — any category will do.

My fifth grade teacher noticed my love of writing and appointed me editor-in-chief of our class newspaper. I loved the clack of the typewriter and the sight of my words in print. I read every book of fairy tales and Greek mythology in the school and town libraries, but my favorite book (then and now) is the dictionary.

I was in college working in the library when I realized I wanted to write for children, but I was a grandmother before my first book GRANDMOTHERS’ STORIES was published.

I live in the woods of western Massachusetts where the hawks soar, owls glide, and the leaves rustle and whisper as I fall asleep. I have two children who are creative adults now: Bjorn, who is a painter and Iris, who is a photographer and librarian. Now I am known as Nana to two boys who live in Maine.

I love teaching the children in my kindergarten and first grade class to read and write. During the summer, I work on my own writing and lead writing workshops for young authors throughout New England.
