About Me

I am a native Vermonter born and raised on the edge of the Kingdom. I sometimes write. People sometimes read what I write. ShiftnShake is a place for you to read some of my writing.

Hosting the annual Carrot Ranch Vermont Writers Refuge at my lakeside property is an opportunity to share my love of kayaking, hiking, and baking sourdough bread.

  1. Thank you for visiting my blog, and reading/commenting on my FF at the Carrot Ranch. That ‘s really great for me because writing any fiction is new for me! I enjoy your FF stories for their humor and the style – that is inimitable! I just skimmed very quickly thru your page on what you’re reading – and plan to return later!
    Thanks again!

    • Thank YOU for coming by here. I surprised myself with the amount of fiction I have written since discovering Carrot Ranch and then other prompts- the reading reports have ended up being a very small part of my blog, not what I had intended in the beginning. So it’s a short page.
      Thank you for reading! (And commenting)

  2. I grew up in Massachusetts and I find myself if you are on Martha’s Vineyard or Nantucket, both are beautiful. I like the title of your website especially that subtitle! It resonates with me. I look forward to following you and reading your work.
