Magazine journalism involves digging, reporting, asking the tough questions, running into dead ends and finding even better angles. It’s getting to know a person, place or experience so intimately that you can tell a story that invites readers to join you with every word.

As a writer, I take pride in the writing craft and telling the story. As a former editor, I’m always asking: Who’s reading? What matters to the audience? Why should readers care? How could this story provide a new perspective?

I cover a range of topics: home and garden, consumer interest, business, health and wellness. I contribute monthly to Cleveland magazine, and have been published in trade journals and consumer magazines: Fortune, Entrepreneur, Cooking Light, Ladies’ Home Journal, Vogue Knitting, Consumers Digest and HGTV.com.
