As a youngster she read voraciously, especially fantasy tales; she attended first Gould Academy as a young adult, then graduated from Bowdoin College in Maine. In between her courses and afterward she worked in a variety of occupations, including being an editor, a research assistant, and a clerk at a bookstore.
