At the suggestion of experts, I've started this web site as a "portfolio" of my writing and as a way for editors and other readers to get to know me better. You can read the full text of my sample work by clicking on the menu tabs on the banner, and I'll be posting publication updates as well as short works (or bits of longer ones) here on my blog. I'm new at blogging, so I welcome all suggestions! And I always appreciate feedback about my work.
I thought I'd start with the good news that my travel essay about Venice has just been published by Don George on Gadling.com -- AOL owns the rights, so click here to read it!
