As a college senior in 1997, I sold my first magazine story. I was hooked. After working briefly as an English teacher and then as a staff writer and editor, I became a full-time freelance writer in 2001.
Over the years, my work has been published by a number of consumer, trade and custom magazines and Web sites, and I’ve produced communications products for a number of small businesses and major corporations. I’ve interviewed well-known figures such as Chef Emeril Lagasse and humor writer Dave Barry, and I’ve investigated the pros and cons of wastewater reuse and the importance of taking vacations. Currently, I write regularly on the topics of business, travel and food, homes and gardens, and family. And I’m always on the lookout for interesting, challenging writing opportunities.
My husband and I are the parents of two young sons and the caretakers of a big vegetable garden, so when I’m not working, I spend a lot of time at the playground or in the kitchen.
