Personal: 

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.

Education/Professional Memberships:

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). 

Offbeat & Fresh Angles:  

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.
