  1. Hi, I’m a writer living in Henniker. We met once this December walking in the woods. I have been working on several books. One is about a diary I kept when I was on welfare when my son was small, and I have been thinking about making it into a comic book/graphic novel. Wonder if you would like to work together. You can look at my work at taramarvel.com. Hope to see you soon. Tara

  2. Good walking and talking with you and Maddy this evening at the Cowboy Poetry gathering areas.
