From travel stories to children’s books, nutrition columns, general-interest magazine stories, and social media content, I create top-quality prose for any audience. Check out my resume page to learn more.
Here are a couple of my recent stories: A tale about following Henry Ward Beecher’s history in Brooklyn Heights, New York for The Washington Post Travel section, and an article about Connecticut’s loss of its brilliant night sky to light pollution for Connecticut Magazine.
Check out my children’s books.
Here’s an excerpt from Publisher’s Weekly‘s review of my latest book, The Beginner’s Guide to Running Away from Home: “The author nails the story’s pacing, dwelling luxuriously on the boy’s resentment, planning, and departure (“See if you can work in a little sob somewhere”), then depicting him at loose ends once he’s out in the world.”
UPDATE: The Bank Street College of Education has named The Beginner’s Guide to Running Away from Home as a 2014 Best Book of the Year!
Here are samples of my health stories for The Washington Post.
I am proud to be a weekly contributor to the National Multiple Sclerosis Society’s blog. I was recently named one of the Top 10 Social HealthMakers on Multiple Sclerosis, a list of the most influential experts leading online conversations about MS, by Sharecare, the online health and wellness engagement platform founded by Dr. Mehmet Oz and Jeff Arnold.
Here are some general-interest stories I have written.
