About Me

My photo
I have discovered that walking a very narrow path leads to broad places of peace, contentment, and provision. I work as a freelance consultant in the areas of cultural heritage, public history and museums, From 2009-2016, I was the executive director of the Bolduc House Museum in Ste. Genevieve, Missouri, (now called New France - the OTHER Colonial America, an eighteenth century French colonial historic site and National Historic Landmark.) My PhD research for the University of Leicester (United Kingdom) is in the Department of Museum Studies and looks at the interpretation of diversity at the American Historic House Museum. I also developed and facilitate an inspirational program for Christian grandparents, Gathering Grandparents.

Oh where, oh where has this writer been?

Work happens to the best of us sometimes. Hopefully the next several months will be less grueling and I'll have time to myself to finish "Stuck in the Mud" and write "Isabel" - which is based on a series of letters written to Isabel Woods by Ben Edwards in the 1890s. Meanwhile, don't think I have not been writing! It's a main component of my work as director of the Bolduc House Museum in Ste. Genevieve, Missouri. It just doesn't get included here. Sorry. More to come in the next few days because if I do not get these items finished and if I do not manage to market what I have already written there is no retirement plan for me other than what I have threatened for the past 14 years: to live with the richest kid.
