Musings on Writing, Travel, & Science from Peaks Island, Maine

About Peaks Island Press

TriciaErikson2Patricia Erikson writes about Maine authors, travel, and science from a vibrant, literary community perched on Peaks Island, two miles off the coast of the beautiful and award-winning city of Portland, Maine. If you haven’t already, follow me on Instagram at @seashorewrite or subscribe to Peaks Island Press in the upper right corner at

Because the island literary community is so extensive and because I maintain Peaks Island Press on the side, I haven’t come close to writing about all of the published authors on the island, but I do try to cast my net farther and farther each year.

  1. I was born on Peaks , in 1958, my mother,Barbara Ann Tracey and grandmother Virginia Henry lived on Elizabeth Street and great grandmother Della H Verrill, also last named McGowan, lived on the Island, Lost my uncle Robert G Tracey to WW1, who is buried in Forest City Cemetery in Portland. Been trying in vain to find information on my family, back in the past, of the Island. My mother passed, keeping many secrets with you, as she was raised, ” What happens on the Island, stays on the Island “. So trying to track down information is not being to easy, except when visit and bring up the name Tracey to the older people, Oh I remember your mother. In the store, bring up, James Henry, all will remember him as a great man, a fisherman. He is my mother,s younger brother. Hope to return again soon, as my memories of my Island, so much different, then now.
