Who am I?

Let me introduce myself: I'm a full-time professional writer, freelance journalist, and avid photographer in Southeastern Connecticut. In fact, I live in Uncasville, the heart of Native American country for the Mohegan and Pequot Nations. A beautiful place to live and work.

My areas of expertise include gardening and horticulture, nature and the environment, animals, food, regional and local history, and destination travel pieces. I am a double certified Master Gardener, and a member of the Connecticut Authors & Publishers Association.

I write for local, regional, and national publications, both print and online. When I'm not on assignment, I'm writing mystery novels,reviewing my favorite books, or blogging about things I love. And I'd love to hear from you, so email me any time.  writerone@newconcordpress.com
