I have written for local newspapers and regional magazines for over a decade. I serve on the local cable committee and as a town ballot clerk. I coordinate monthly cleanups at North Hampton State Beach on the 3rd Saturday of every month at 9 a.m... and we always need volunteers. I'm a "Citizenship In the Nation" merit badge counselor for Boy Scout Troop 162. I love maps, books, birds, airplanes, flowers, the ocean, taking pictures, and my family. I also blog at amykane.net and seacoastshorts.com.
