I am a Tennessee girl who loves the great outdoors. My favorite pastimes — other than writing — are hiking, camping, kayaking and traveling to exciting places on this glorious spinning orb we call home. I also enjoy gardening, knitting and classic jazz. In addition to the writing that I do for a living at the local newspaper, I also write for pure pleasure, crafting tales of human interest about the ironies and surprises of life. In the great outdoors, I find both relaxation and inspiration. You can frequently find me trailside, sitting atop a comfortable boulder or tree stump, scribbling down thoughts in a journal.
I maintain two ongoing blogs here: Musings on Life (stories about life, people and places) and The Write Stuff (tips on grammar, writing and punctuation). You may subscribe to either or both via RSS feed or email. This site also includes Oscar's Wilde Ride, a closed blog about my travel adventure in Ireland.
Happy reading, and thanks so much for stopping by! Please come back and visit often.
