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.

    Hi Cindy,
    I just wanted to let you know that I have been reading your daily Life Lines and really appreciate them. I really thought them to be inspirational and thought provoking. This one is especially timely and says so much in such a concise amount of words. Keep up the great work. I am sure everyone on your email list appreciates them.

    Have a Great Mother’s Day,

      Thanks ever so much, Bob. So nice of you to write, and I am happy you like the posts. I truly enjoy putting them out there. I was teaching a writing class not long ago, and I was reminded of you and the wonderful writing you shared with my classes in the past.
