Whitney is a woman who greets you with, “Hello dahling.
The first time we spoke on the phone, I got a sense of her proper upbringing, tempered by her experiences in life. I think it’s those two, seemingly distinct poles that make her writing so appealing.
She refers to her writing as campfire stories. Whether she writes about writing as she’s done here at Two Drops of Ink, or in her books, Whitney references fire – a spark of inspiration, or a trial by fire.
She is published in numerous magazines such as Cruising World, Connecticut Magazine, YANKEE, Greenwich Magazine, Maine Boats and Harbors, and The Nautical Quarterly.
In 1987, she authored a book entitled Where to Next? about making a successful career change; she also co-authored a book called Academy Days, a history of the school she attended while growing up in Greenwich, Connecticut, and has published twelve books of her own since. Using Createspace, she helps other people publish their personal stories onto Amazon.
Whitney and her husband, Barry, have been married for forty-six years. They have just one child, a son who was born two weeks after they celebrated their twentieth year of child-free marriage.
At the time, they were brand-new in recovery from alcoholism, which is a family disease. For a while, it looked like the disease might win, but God won instead. Their son is now in graduate school, so they’ve relocated the family home to South Carolina.
