Robin Clifford Wood is a writer and writing professor living in central Maine with her husband and dogs. She has a BA from Yale University, an MA in English from the University of Rochester, and an MFA in creative writing from the University of Southern Maine's Stonecoast program. Wood was a regular columnist for two years in central Massachusetts and five years at Maine’s Bangor Daily News. Other publications appeared in Port City Life magazine, Bangor Metro, Middlesex News, and Genesee Valley Parent magazine. Wood has completed two non-fiction books, as yet unpublished. One, a memoir, journeys through a mother-daughter relationship at the end of life. The second is a biography-memoir hybrid about sharing a summer home with the spirit of deceased writer and poet, Rachel Field. Wood relishes the confounding complexity and simplicity of each person and every thing—death and laughter, dogs and snowflakes, music, magic, motherhood, cataclysm, and the smell of popcorn. She welcomes visitors to her website at robincliffordwood.com.
