After a stint reporting on equities for Bloomberg News, she renovated a ramshackle Gustav Stickley foursquare on Peaks Island, Maine. Currently a resident of New York's Hudson Valley, she writes a monthly feature - "The Home" - for Chronogram magazine. She's preparing to compete in a three-day novel writing competition. She likes to hike the Catskills with her two dogs, Ben and Mister Dennis, and is in her tenth year of yoga practice.
