Returning to the classroom after raising a family, I was fortunate to teach 12th grade English. The curriculum included Hamlet, about which I grew more passionate each year I taught. My conviction of the play's allegorical meaning grew as well. When I retired from teaching, my interest in the play continued, and finally has resulted in my writing HAMLET In Defense of the Faith. My husband and I live in Massachusetts. I enjoy spending time with my grandchildren, reading, gardening, and traveling. Having grown up an Army Brat, I consider many places to be home.
