Additional Bio

I am a planner (aicp) and my coastline property (and the entire neighborhood) on buzzards bay has been experiencing noticeable sea rise so that during storms the water enters the first floor. In order to publicize the reality of sea rise I am working on the second draft of a novel, set in chatham, ma. describing the loss of 9 houses after the 1989 break in nauset (a barrier beach).
