I am an Englishwoman who has lived in America since my early twenties. After five years in Berkeley, California I settled in Maryland where I raised my family and worked as a librarian and library manager. For five years I submitted my Dispatches about life in America to The Dabbler. The Dabbler went on hiatus in 2015 but the Dispatches live on. On this independent site I expand the scope of my posts beyond the New World to memories of the Old World, the World of Books, and more. I promise this will be a cat video-free zone, but it is possible that a hedgehog may pop up occasionally. I invite readers who followed me on The Dabbler to join me here.
