His plays have been produced in Maine and off- Broadway.Ted is married to painter, poet, singer Ruth. they live in a log home on Lake Maranacook in Readfield.

Steve Cowperthwaite is a teacher with the reputation of being a storyteller. He is happiest when he is creative rather then meditative. He built his own house, lots of small buildings, round woodpiles, fixed boats and published some history. He loves Senior College at UMA and am a regular. In Ted Bookey's poetry class, he learned to tell stories through poetry. Memories of his childhood on a hardscrabble farm here in Maine are a great source for him. He lives in a beautiful place that he loves and loves to share with his dear family and friends. Nature is all around. He loves history and especially the history of what happened right here, but has enjoyed traveling in Russia in recent years.
