MV Obsession

My obsession with Martha's Vineyard.. phototography..genealogy and life in general and this and that…

My Friend Seamond, the Author …


100_3862 “I am, and always will be, a lighthouse keeper’s daughter.  I had the good fortune to be born to a different kind of childhood.  I didn’t recognize this fact back when I was small.  I thought that everybody lived like we did on our little island of Cuttyhunk, Massachusetts, which in itself was a life apart…” Seamond Ponsart Roberts.

These words were spoken by my dear friend Seamond Roberts who just had this book published.


Seamond grew up here at West Chop lighthouse on Martha’s Vineyard – can you think of a more perfect spot to spend your childhood.

A couple of years ago I did a post about her called ‘Lighthouse Keeper’s Daughter’… CLICK HERE to read it.

My copy just came today and I haven’t read it yet but I have heard many of Seamond’s stories and they are delightful, riveting, heart breaking, touching and humorous… you’ll love it.

“EVERYDAY HEROES:  The True Story Of A Lighthouse Family” (available on

Come back and let me know how you liked it… better yet if you want to email Seamond contact me for her email address… she’d love to hear from you… she told me so 🙂

I'm married, I have two daughters and two grandchildren and they all love MV. Enjoy my MV blog and contact me if I can answer any questions. This blog started out as strictly about Martha's Vineyard but over the years I've branched out to include other obsessions and interests. I enjoy photography and like sharing my photos here as well. Hope you enjoy :)

  1. Joanie: As usual you say the nicest things in the nicest ways. It’s my birthday today and having the book in real publication is the best BD gift I’ve ever gotten. It’s selling! (I’m truly amazed!) My co-author has contacted the Bunch of Grapes and here’s hoping they bite! Thank you, thank you. Lots of love and, yes, any lighthouse people who want to contact me, Joanie knows how, just ask her. Seamond

  2. Happy happy birthday Seamond. I’m loving your book and hope to see it at the Vineyard bookstores when I’m there. Love to you on your birthday.
