I’ve been away from this blog for way too long, but that doesn’t mean I’ve been idle. Besides moving to a new state, teaching, parenting, and working on some creative writing, I’ve continued to write some feature articles for two regional magazines in Washington state. I’ve also recently edited a book that’s been released. If you’re a fan of historical fiction, check it out!
CRUDEM publishes a fantastic quarterly magazine focused on their important work in Haiti. Check out the article I wrote about Dr. Jeff Monda and the rest of the Haiti-bound, Wenatchee-based medical team.
The brand-spankin’ new edition of Foothills is out and it looks great! The magazine sponsored a fun regional wine invitational held on Saturday. It was great to connect with some folks I hadn’t seen in ages.
Look for my perfect picnic pointers in the latest issue of Foothills.
The local newspaper in my town kindly gave me a prominent, regular column during my recent humanitarian trip with a medical team and Rotary group to Haiti. It was great exposure and I’m so glad people have shared that this perspective helped bring this far-off country alive to them. But friends and strangers alike were pretty clear that some of the edited versions in the paper were a little disjointed. I think it was tough for the publisher to whittle such a life-encompassing trip down to several hundred words. I’m glad he used what he could and believe me, I wish I’d had more time and restful brainpower while I was there to severely edit some of my own stream-of-consciousness wordflow that spewed through my fingers straight to the keyboard. But we both did what we could. Check out my blog if you’d like to read a fuller account of the shortened bits that were in the paper, or look here for longer accounts that the local paper has kept online.
Just in time for spic and span, check out my tips on spring green cleaning in the current issue of Foothills.
Check out Foothills, North Central Washington’s newest lifestyle magazine. Be sure to flip through the pages and find my current articles. I write regularly for this bi-monthly publication.

I’ve written several articles for The Good Life magazine over the past several years (even before they had a website!).
