I love taking offbeat approaches to familiar topics and looking for fresh angles. I love reading and research, and you’ll seldom find me without a Bible, book or magazine in hand.
I’m an award-winning writer whose work has appeared in numerous publications, including American Profile, The Saturday Evening Post, BJ’s Journal, Woman’s World, Writer’s Digest, Boomer, Cooperative Living, numerous trade magazines/custom publications and many more. Sample some of my work on the Articles page of this website.
My writing is a mixed bag of profiles, interviews, music, business, travel, health, consumer service, essays/columns and general interest features. I’ve interviewed neurologists about the brain’s complexities, discussed the impact of Lyme disease with Lyme sufferers and chatted with Vince Gill & Amy Grant in their Nashville home. I’ve been dazzled by pinball wizards at Las Vegas’ Pinball Hall of Fame, enjoyed a private tour of California’s Mt. Whitney portal with Loren Janes (Steve McQueen’s stunt double) and toured Historic Jamestowne with archaeologist/author Dr. Bill Kelso, who first unearthed fragments of the 1607 James Fort at Historic Jamestowne, the original site where America’s first colonists settled.
I’m married and live with my husband and “dog daughter” in Virginia. I love the beach, dogs, reading, travel, music, film noir/classic films and classic television. My work has earned over 2 dozen awards via VPC (Virginia Professional Communicators) and NFPW (National Federation of Press Women).
