Both from the Portland, Maine area where they were engineering students, Beverly and her husband lived for many years in Massachusetts. Beverly currently resides in Naples, Maine. She has three grown daughters, all married who collectively have nine children ranging in ages from 7-20.
Beverly has been writing ever since she can remember, writing poetry as a child and then sci-fi in her twenties. When she moved to Acton, Ma. in 1978, she started writing a slice of life column for the local newspaper. Her books are all motivated by personal experiences, even her sci-fi short stories being based on dreams.
