About Colleen

My writing is eclectic, as is evident in my Op-Eds in the Pulitzer-Prize-winning Providence Journal. Then there’s my Grandpa and the Truck children’s books, or my work on my current book, Boomerrrang. Upon invitation, I guest-speak also.

But I am almost always a humorist.

My Op-Eds encourage teachers in an ever-more-difficult career and remind readers of their childhood.

My Grandpa and the Truck children’s books, about the exciting travels of a 30 year, big-rig driver who moved households over the entire United States have been heralded by parents, teachers, Women In Trucking (WIT) and the biggest international truckers’ association, OOIDA.

In my next book, Boomerrrang (soon to be published) I talk about about the journey many of us make to identify our retirement home. I base it on my partner Paul’s and my 9+ years, living in one of America’s top retirement towns–Asheville.

But it’ll be a fun and useful guide for all who plan to buy or sell a home… anywhere.

So, writing about teaching….trucking….moving out of state and back again.  As I said, I’m  eclectic.
