I have been a free lance writer/photographer with 20-plus years of experience. I have done feature articles accompanied with photos for local newspapers and magazines such as SUCCESSFUL FARMING, COUNTRY and FARM & RANCH LIVING. I have written two weekly columns, one titled “Half Tank Travels” and the other named “Know Your Business Neighbor”. I have always been a country girl, growing up on a farm in southwest Michigan. I married a farmer from Pennsylvania and we now live on a hobby farm of 37 acres. My writing and photography has always centered around rural topics, many of which I find close to home. However, when my husband Jim and I travel, we almost always take the back roads and always discover country tidbits worth writing about. I look forward to including many of these in my blogs.
