My writing has appeared in dozens of local, regional, national and international publications since 1995 when I stumbled into this field, and was paid for it, which set me up with expectations that have yet to be met.

I’ve served as an ongoing contributor to these print publications:

The Commons

The Sun by the Sea

The Cracker Barrel

Parenting Express

Food for Thought

My writing has been featured online with national & international organizations, including these:
