Since so much of my time is spent between the communities where I live and work, I can cover “big city” stories (rural definition) in a way that relates to small town people.
Topics of interest include social issues such as poverty, criminal justice, mental health, drug addiction, and–not as often as I would prefer–cute animals doing cute things, in good health with a happy ending. Like Moe, the therapy dog.
I am interested in feature writing and investigative journalism, as well as alternative story forms and multimedia storytelling.
When I am not writing, I am being ignored by six cats at the same time.
