About Me

I write from the heart about subjects that impact how we live each day in our homes.  Over time my view has broadened to include a range of topics that inspire me and I want to share that passion and energy through words with others.

As a syndicated columnist for Creators Syndicate (www.creators.com) I have provided the weekly column “Small Spaces” to them for over twenty years. Creators features 250 artists and writers and boasts a daily readership of 44 million. “Small Spaces” focuses on living compactly, but well. For the Millennial audience and those looking to downsize, this is a current topic. I am considered an expert concerning interior design and architecture of micro-units, small houses and small apartments. Two books are under my belt!  

  • Big Ideas for Small Space (Published by Rockport Press, 2000) 
  • Small Space Living (Schaffer Books 2009)

I hold the skills and experience of an interior designer. That unique background gives me a solid platform from which to write authoritatively and with depth about all that that relate to the built environment, furnishings, art, lifestyle trends, the impact of design on human beings, and many other subjects concerned with the quality of life.

Life is filled with a husband, a chocolate American field-trained Labrador named Siggy, a luscious garden, a kayak, and curiosity.
