Feature writing:

  • Newsstand Magazines -- With a keen eye for detail and a commitment to deadlines, I have enjoyed a wide variety of assignments from editors of  publications such as AmericanStyle, Country Living, Washingtonian, Destinations, and Southern Living.  My specialties include craft and art, food and restaurants, home and garden, as well as corporate-executive and artist profiles  

  • Trade and Association Magazines -- Business-to-business writing has been an important component of my career.  Organizations I have written for include American Society of Association Executives, National Restaurant Association, and the American Chiropractic Association.  (View samples...)
