I write books. Books about gardening, crafting, cooking, the local food movement, and social history. I also write people profiles, articles, and essays. I write for kids and I write for adults. What I love most about writing is that it offers me an excuse to really delve deep into a topic, learn what is fascinating about it, and then share what I’ve discovered with others. I relish the details and like the challenge of establishing a structure to a piece of writing that best captures the essence of the topic. I especially love writing about people who’ve found a way to do what they are most passionate about.
