About Me

I blog about women’s issues and political activism and have written for Prymemag.com.

I write from the heart about subjects that impact how we live.  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.

Currently I am working on a book about people who are childless not by choice and welcome individual stories from men and women who find themselves not being able to have children. I invite all ages to share their experiences regarding this life changing issue with me.

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 and do some projects still as a Professional Member of the American Society of Interior Designers. 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.
