I grew up in the Maryland suburbs of Washington, DC, but even as a young child, I longed for a quieter place. I found what I was looking for when I moved to a small city in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Southwest Virginia, where I have lived for most of my adult life. I have worn many hats while raising my family, but writer is the one that fits best. I enjoy writing for local and regional publications, and blogging as a more personally creative outlet.
Besides writing, I also enjoy hiking, cooking, reading, and hanging out in museums. Netflix is pretty great, too. Mostly, I love spending time with my family, which includes a husband, two daughters, a rabbit, and a paper-eating dog named Pete.
Thanks for visiting. I hope you’ll come again soon.
