About the Author

I’m strictly a sociable bridge player, but got hooked on the history and pop culture of bridge a couple decades ago. In 2007 I decided to write a book about sociable bridge and bridge history from a woman’s viewpoint, because no such book existed.

This E-zine/Blog is on my “bucket list” you could say. 

Background? I’m widowed, with three children, six grandchildren, living independently in Florida, after almost twenty years of living in New Hampshire. Other hobbies than writing Bridge Table are hanging out at libraries, politics (a “junkie”), reading, cooking and cookbooks, occasional beachwalking. I worked as a court stenographer during WWII, and much later as a school secretary in Bayport, N.Y.

In the 1980s, retired, I typeset books for independent publishers, and also wrote and published Traveler’s Reading Guide—Ready-made Reading Lists for the Armchair Traveler and later edited two updated editions of the book for Facts on File.

Education? I like to quote Ray Bradbury in reply—“I never went to college, I went to the library.”
