Copy Editor

Faye S. Wolfe is a writer and editor and the coauthor of a book about Northampton, Massachusetts. She lives in that city with her husband, Leslie, in a Victorian house about as eccentric as she is, designed and constructed in 1849 by the architect-builder William Fenno Pratt and his father, Thomas. A longtime, but not an obsessed, collector of handmade pottery and old bits and pieces of china, she admires craft wherever she finds it.
