I've been involved with boats, writing, and editing most of my adult life. I've served as communications director and membership coordinator at Penobscot Marine Museum and as a book acquisitions editor for International Marine Publishing/McGraw-Hill. I've also written articles for boating magazines and a series of children's books about boats; worked for a couple boatbuilders; built a few small boats on my own; and hold a Masters of Marine Affairs degree from University of Rhode Island.
