I AM A PROFESSIONAL WRITER, EDITOR, and passionate advocate of the serial comma. I love to tell people’s stories. The topics I most frequently cover include interior decorating and design, architecture, real estate, and personal finance. My work has been published hundreds of times in magazines, on websites, and in books.
One of my favorite recent projects: working as executive editor of the creatively quirky Flea Market Style magazine. Being surrounded by such a talented publishing team reminds me every day why magazines are so addictive. Another top pick: founding and running the website TheStrengthBehindtheStrong.com, which offers support and advice to those with family and friends in the military.
