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 have submitted my Dispatches about life in America to The Dabbler. Alas, The Dabbler’s editors have placed the site in mothballs for an indefinite period. But the Dispatches will live on. On this new independent site I plan to 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.
