There are times when the urge to put pen (yes a real, will-leak-in-a-plane pen) to actual paper is so overwhelming I have to give myself five minutes to transfer the urge from thought to deed. While those little musings are often random bits of prose and poetry, I’ve been penning work that’s been regularly published for almost a decade. A fan of tight writing, I believe every noun, every vowel, every syllable should serve a purpose and words simply for words sake behove no one. I’ve covered a variety of topics including but not limited to home design, gardening, travel, fashion, beauty, parenting and food in styles that range from personal essays to Q and A interviews to informative blurbs to product roundups. Below is a selection of published works from my portfolio.
