About

Trixie & me

Anne Pinkerton studied poetry at Hampshire College and received an MFA in creative nonfiction from Bay Path University. Her writing often focuses on making sense of challenging life experiences; significant themes include loss, illness, grief, and coping. She writes to attempt to make sense of seemingly senseless occurrences and to help others feel a little less alone in the world.

She works as marketing communications professional in higher ed and lives in western Massachusetts with two dogs and two cats.

Grief is the shadow love casts in the light of loss. The grander the love, the vaster the shadow. So much of who we are — who we discover ourselves to be — takes shape in that umbral space as we fumble for some edge to hold onto, some point of light to orient by.
