About cyclingrandma

I was a journalist (Danbury News-Times, Ct), before becoming a teacher, and continue to write for professional journals. I have written several study guides for Penguin Books and write for Education Update, a newspaper based in New York City. ( I’ve interviewed many authors, college presidents, and scientists. I wrote “The Kentucky Derby’s Forgotten Jockeys” for Smithsonian Magazine's website, (April, 2009). Two essays have been published in book anthologies; one for Wisdom of Our Mothers, (Familia Books) and the other in “College Search and Parent Rescue: Essay for Parents by Parents of College-Going Students.” (St. Martin’s Press). I was a middle school Language Arts teacher for more than 10 years and have just completed a five year grant position under No Child Left Behind in Newark, NJ public schools. I have three children, two daughters-in law, and six grandchildren. I'm an avid cyclist, knitter, cook, and reader. I love theater, museums, and yoga.

    Sorry I missed it. Looking forward to next opportunity. Peace.


  8. What a talented group; I loved the stories in Tangerine Tango. It must have been wonderful to have those writers all in one place together.


    • Just the three of us– and one is my sister! But it was fun. Would be great to get everyone together- all scattered across the country. Thinking of doing another– would you be interested in submitting?

    This is so cool! Love that you’re taking Tangerine on the road!


    • My hometown library where I grew up– not a huge turnout but fun. Spoke at a local library yesterday- all senior citizens. They loved the stories, but only sold one book.

    Congrats! You’re a published author…very cool. 🙂


  11. Congratulations! Love that last photo especially! Self-published no longer bears any stigma, or hint of vanity press. I know several mid-list authors who have big name publishers who chose to change over to self-publishing because is better served their interests.

    You all look so professional. I didn’t know that Madeleine is your sister.

    How fun. I just followed Gabi’s blog and read the article about your face to face meeting. If you ever cycle out west, be sure to make it all the way to California! 🙂
