About Me

I've demonstrated the ability to write about a wide range of topics. They range from patient profiles for a hospital's public relations department; feature articles for multiple equine publications and websites; historical/feature stories for a boutique bimonthly publication, and news articles and columns for a daily newspaper.  Most recently, I earned first place honors in American Horse Publications' media awards in the category of single feature article.
