“Being generous often consists of simply
extending a hand. That’s hard to do if you are grasping tightly to your righteousness, your belief system, your superiority, your assumptions about others, and your definition of normal.”
~Patti Digh, Life Is a Verb

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.
