“Some situations, places, hobbies, and people have expiration dates. As you grow and change, so do your needs. Staying in situations that no longer serve you will only keep you trapped or running in place. Give yourself permission to break free of what’s holding you back.” ~Marc & Angel Hack Life

Throughout my career, I've worked as a book production editor, travel magazine editor, features writer, and weekly newspaper columnist.
My award-winning lifestyles features and essays have appeared in many national magazines and anthologies, including Newsweek, Reader's Digest, The Christian Science Monitor, Writer's Digest, Victoria, Better Homes & Gardens, Bella Grace, and more. My weekly Sunday "Life Lines" column ran for 14 years in The Daily Tribune (Royal Oak, MI) and won a First Place (Local Columns) award from the Michigan Press Association.
My essay collection, Writing Home, includes 93 previously published columns and essays focusing on parenthood and family life.
