I am a baby boomer who defied age by moving my family from a sedentary life in England to a farming one in Portugal.
As a child in New York, whose parents were from Belize, I bellylaughed at "I Love Lucy", read books within arm's reach from the Astoria Public Library, and studied ballet and tap in Manhattan.
Even then, I knew that I always would be a writer, no matter what.
It was my son, Caladon, then 8, who suggested that I write Portugal Is Personal. He said that this non-fiction work would create interest in my fiction.
Portugal Is Personal is a collection of humorous, sentimental and practical essays about the move. It is published in 13 installments. Please join me on my journey to a place of tranquility.
