Irene....I've been married to Gerry for 16 years. We have a son, Jeff, who is 15 and my greatest joy in life. We live in Lewiston, Maine, where Gerry and I own and operate a tavern. We also own a building which houses 10 apartments and 2 businesses (including our tavern). I was a french teacher, but I taught english as a 2nd language in Quebec for 7 years. I read almost constantly, usually best-selling fiction like Stephen King and Dean Koontz. I am a member of Citizens for Excellence in Lewiston Schools, Parent Involvement Committee at the High School and the Crisis Management Team at the High Schools.
