Born in Boston with the accent to prove it, Risa lived within ten miles of the city for decades until a recent move to the neighboring Ocean State.

Writing is now a priority and passion. At other times, Risa is reading, exercising or doing therapeutic ironing – unless the grandchildren are around.
