“我的第二人生或第二职业是拯救卡姆登的历史. To accomplish this, I wrote 14 books, hundreds of articles for the newspaper, internet and a couple of magazines. Then at age 70 I taught Adult Education on Local History, Antiques and Public Speaking. Many talks I gave at local organizations, the Camden Public Library and schools on Local History. 还曾在遴选委员会和几个镇委员会任职.

“As it is never too late to get more education, I attended the University of Maine for two years. The students must have thought I was their professor or grandmother, but it was enjoyable. In my spare time, I worked as a member of the Camden Women's Club, volunteered at the Camden-Rockport Historical Society and The Camden Area History Center (now the Walsh History Center at the Camden Public Library).”

“I hope that I bring a chuckle, or a tear, or a happy memory from time to time, and if I do, I’ll never know, but that’s why I write.”
