I AM A PROFESSIONAL WRITER, EDITOR, and passionate advocate of the serial comma. I love to tell other people’s stories. The topics I most frequently cover include interior decorating and design, architecture, real estate, personal finance, antiques, travel, health, and education. My work has been published hundreds of times in magazines, on websites, and in books.  

One of my favorite projects: Helping to organize Country Home magazine’s “Show Your Colors, America” charity quilt project, which raised $65,000 for families of 9/11 victims. It was fulfilling and humbling to witness the generosity of our readers. Another top pick: Writing (almost) every article in the creatively quirky 144-page Flea Market Style magazine. Working with such a talented team reminds me every day why magazines can be so addictive.

The only career I could possibly love more is Chief Taster at a 
chocolate shop.
