In her childhood, a typical family gathering would include a minimum of four magazine editors, a fashion editor or two, her uncle, the editor of a weekly in Vermont, and an author or two.

She is happiest on her sailing dinghy, a vintage 1965 Merrimac, or at Shankhassick Farm in Durham, NH, where she lives with her cats Toulouse & Fergie, and 36 free-range chickens.
