A writer and sugarmaker, I live with my two daughters in Woodbury, Vermont. Among many other things, I work at KidsVT in Burlington, Vermont, garden in the few possible Vermont months, and manage to read a few books, too.

My novel, Hidden View, a gritty story woven with family, farming, and the desire for redemption, was published by Green Writers Press in the fall of 2015.

    Hello, Brett Ann! I am so happy that you found my blog, and to have found your blog in return. I must admit, I’m something of a fan, having read your pieces in Taproot magazine (a friend lent me her back issues #1-16 this fall, and I read them all straight through, one after another!) I am also excited to see that you have a book published, which I am hoping our local bookstore will have in stock. Always nice to meet another Vermont writer/woman/mother, no matter how virtually!

  2. The internet, despite many flaws, really does have its plusses at times – especially in rural Vermont. It’s really nice to hear you read my writing in Taproot. I look forward to reading more of your adventures!

  3. Hi Brett Ann,

    Hi from snowy muddy East Barnard.
    I’m happy I stumbled across you in my browsing this a.m. on State 14.

    Hoping to pick up your book in a VT bookstore. Do you know if it’s for sale at Bear Pond, Yankee Bookstore or Norwich Bookstore?Jeffrey L is a friend and I adore his writing. His endorsement must make you so happy! Can’t wait to read your book.


  4. Hi Sue, hello from still-frozen Hardwick! I’m so glad you stumbled across me! Jeffrey Lent’s endorsement made me incredibly happy. I admire his writing so much! My book has been for sale at all those bookstores, but I’m not sure if it’s in stock now. I’m glad to mail you a copy. Just send me your address. You can reach me at brettstanciu@hotmail.com.

    Vermont’s such a small state — I hope we’ll meet up in person sometime.

    Very best, Brett

  5. Yes! to the thawing beginning… and I hope you like my novel. Sending good spring wishes — Brett
