“False friends are like shadows, always near you at your brightest moments but nowhere to be seen at your darkest hour. True friends are like stars; you don’t always see them but they are always there.” ~Habeeb Akande

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.
I just love this photo, and saying, especially as I am in an astronomy class this term. The photo is just perfect for this time of year!
Things that make me happy
Thanks, Lynne! You'd love the planetarium shows at Cranbrook (if you haven't seen them already).
