I am a warm, compassionate person who is considered smart and funny (used to do stand-up comedy). My passion is writing, and I have finished the manuscript of my first book, "Confessions of A Sports Nut," a memoir of my lifetime involvement with sports. Now comes Chapter Two-trying to sell my book to a publisher or literary agent. Prior to that I contributed over 150 sports and feature articles to Gatehouse Media, which covers many of Boston's suburban cities and towns. After working in customer service and sales for a long time, I now substitute teach in the Stoughton and Canton public school systems (high school and middle school). I have found this to be an interesting and rewarding experience (although sometimes frustrating). I love movies, theater, politics, sports, comedy, good music and good food. I am hoping to meet the right woman to share some of these interests with, as well as have her introduce me to some of her interests. Life is better when it is shared with someone you care about.
