M. T. Lange spent years in the classrooms of upstate New York. Though from the city originally, she was drawn to the country life living on a farm raising kids, dogs and horses. Her love for teaching and writing remains a part of her life and continues today. The mountains still hold stories and mysteries. Ask for a favorite poem or line and she may quote Frost, “The woods are lovely, dark and deep but I have promises to keep and miles to go before I sleep.” That says it all.
