I’m a freelance writer, an essayist and travel writer whose work has been published in The Christian Science Monitor, The Washington Post, Virginia Living, Troika, Richmond Magazine, and others. I’ve been writing a wide-ranging, personal Home & Garden column for RHome for nine years now.  I wrote Insiders’ Guide to Richmond,  published in Sept. 2010, for Globe Pequot Press. I write for children as well and just sold a poem to Highlights.  In 2010, a partner and I started Real Richmond Food Tours, offering food tours and some might say, more, to folks lucky enough to spend 2.5 hours in Richmond, VA.

I grew up in Maryland and have lived in Massachusetts, Ireland, New Jersey, South Carolina, and now Virginia. I swear it sounds more interesting than it was.
