I am a writer and photographer.

Retired from a brief (3-1/2- year) career in product development at Procter and Gamble, followed by a much longer vocation as a full-time homemaker and mother of four, now grown, children, I have a lot of time to pursue both interests — photography and writing.

In 2007 I earned an undergraduate degree in English with a minor in written communications. While doing so, I took several courses in photography.

I love to work with the combination of words and photographs to inform, record events, examine history, explore the natural world, and share travels.

I live in Cincinnati, Ohio with my husband Mark and our dog Arthur.
