I’ve been telling (mostly true) stories since I was a chubby grade school kid. I turned to journalism as way to get through college and my divorce in 2003. Since then, I have followed my dream of writing for a living.

My journalism career has taken me to small towns and medium-sized cities in Maine, New Mexico, Colorado, and Massachusetts, a small farming community in Ohio — and soon — the border communities of the southwest. I’ve reported on dog-sled races, murder trials, hikers lost in the wilderness, and everything in between.

At the heart of it all are people and the stories they have to tell. Stories are what connect us, what bind us to each other, what make us human.

I’m addicted to road trips, Western skies, unavailable men, and good green chile anything.
