About dawntheresa

I am a writer and children's art supporter who has found a home in Gloucester, MA. I grew up in central Pennsylvania, but never felt as rooted there as I already do after my first three years here. At this point in my life I write to discover more about the mystical attraction of Cape Ann and the people here, as well as to share with the world the stories of those, young and old, who meld together here with the beautiful landscape to create a picture perfect life.
