|Location||St. Paul, Minnesota, United States|
|Introduction||I am a writer at heart, a proofreader by trade, but without a soul if it were not for the nuthatches crawling down my trees, the robins, chickadees, cardinals, and yes, the much-maligned jibbering starlings that create their own unique concerts. I have wildflowers and perennials squeezed into my front and back yards and along the curb of my house in the city. My greatest job: I was a reporter for a locally-based newspaper, where I wrote human interest and news articles, but now I am a freelance writer, both online and in print. See MY ONLINE ARTICLES on how to ATTRACT BIRDS and BUTTERFLIES, and the HEALTHIEST NATURAL FOODS at my contributor page|
|Interests||Uppermost: My husband, our daughter, and our cat. Other than that: writing, reading, research, learning, nature, gardening, astronomy, birdwatching, ecology, preservation, restoration, conservation, horseback riding, etc.|
|Favorite Books||North American Wildlife by Reader's Digest, A Field Guide to Wildflowers by Peterson/McKenny, Sibley Guide to Birds by David Allen Sibley, Creating a Butterfly Garden by Marcus Schneck, & novels by Maeve Binchy, Wally Lamb, Jane Hamilton, Whitney Otto, Sue Miller, Sharon Creech, and my own, as yet unpublished, literary coming-of-age novel.|
