News on Peaks Island Authors

Blog Author Patricia Erikson

When I’m not writing or chasing down Peaks Island authors and their doings, I’m either keeping up with my full-time job as Director of Marketing & Communications for Thornton Academy or consulting for museums, public schools, and other non-profit organizations. Whether it’s writing fiction or non-fiction, or rustling around in the archives, what I love to do is recover hidden stories in the past and present. When I need a break from that, I’m either motoring around the coves of Casco Bay, running island trails, or swooshing down Maine’s ski slopes seeking a rush of Arctic air.
