What do you write?

In addition to the dining column, I write personal essays. One entitled "Traveling Companion was selected for the anthology "Cup of Comfort for Women. I also wrote a local interest book called "Rochester Eats: 75 Years of Craves and Faves. I am working on a collection of stories from my years working as a staff member at a community soup kitchen.

What's your favorite subject to write about?

I write about Food, Faith, Family and Friends.

Who is your favorite author?

Anne Lamott - I love her liberal, loving and self deprecating take on faith. I also like Crescent Dragonwagon, Vermont cookbook author of Dairy Hollow Soup & Bread Cookbook, Passionate Vegetarian and Bean by Bean. I have been fortunate to take writing workshops with both!

If you could meet any dead writer, who would it be?

I'd love to meet Laurie Colwin, who wrote serveral novels, but also two great books on food & relationships "Home Cooking" and "More Home Cooking"

What do you hope to achieve in your work?

I would like to use my recent relocation to make dedicated writing time. I want to finish and find a market for my collection of essays & stories from my work in a community center & soup kitchen in Rochester.


I am a recent transplant from Upstate New York. A freelance food & travel writer, I wrote the dining column for our local paper. As a member of Finger Lakes Culinary Bounty I promoted the wine & food of the region and farm to table dining.
