Women of Granite

The Write Sisters are busy at work on their first joint publication: Women of Granite: 25 New Hampshire Women You Should Know (to be published by Apprentice Shop Books in 2008). These women overcame many odds (mostly men) to leave a lasting mark on NH. Some of them you may have heard of, most, you won't.

We are giving voices to those who cry out from the grave for validation! Okay, some aren't dead yet, but they will be one day, and then they'll cry out from the grave. We'll save them the trouble by writing about their accomplishments now. That way, everyone can rest in peace!

Where You Can See Us

We will be walking as a team in the Making Strides against Breast Cancer event on Sunday, October 14. Nationally, one in seven women will develop breast cancer. In our little group of eight, we have had three affected by breast cancer! So, join us in the Manchester, NH walk, or walk in any of the other events happening around the country (find a walk near you). Thanks for your support!

The True Lives of The Write Sisters

Every family has at least one fashion plate Janet Buell, is ours. When she's not paging through Vogue she can be found writing or zipping around on her Harley.

Where does she find the time? Between gardening, fishing, and being our web mistress, Kathy Deady still manages to write!

Muriel Dubois has written over 35 books for children. She is often over her head in writing projects.

Diane Mayr is our blog queen. She spends weekdays working as a public librarian. "Hey, you, put those anatomy books back!"

Andrea Murphy is a carefree, 20-something, girl-about-town. She bends the truth now and again, which makes her a pretty good storyteller.

Chickens have long been an interest of Barbara Turner. She's currently working on an epic poem about the history of fried chicken.

Sally Wilkins has written seven non-fiction books and dozens of magazine articles. She is especially interested in history.
