Dudley day-in-my-life: All things editorial! I am constantly brainstorming how to tell the Dudley Stephens story in creative ways that our community will find relatable. 

Personal style muses: 1970s-era Jackie O, Katharine Hepburn, Diane Keaton in Annie Hall

Pinch-me moment: Meeting my forever idol James Taylor after one of his concerts (I’ve been to five)! 

Sunshine on a cloudy day: My boys’ smiles.

Wise words: “Tell me, what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?” -Mary Oliver

Book: Anything and everything by the late, great Nora Ephron. She and other female essayists like Joan Didion, Annie Dillard and Anne Lamott are the reasons I fell in love with writing.

Desert island must-have: A great novel, a Cobble Hill and a crisp glass of oaky Chardonnay.

Guilty pleasure: Yacht Rock

Happy place: Edgartown, Massachusetts
