I am a freelance writer and have written for all ages from children to adults and seniors on topics such as:
- Beach Glass
- Parenting an Olympian
- Women construction workers
- Driving around Lake Superior
- Dragon boat races
- Home and cabin renovation
- Christmas 100 years ago
- Living in a foam dome home
- Winter Survival, and much more….
For Highlights for Children magazine I’ve written a rebus (picture story), a longer funny story about a boy who runs out of everything, and a biography of William Spooner, a man famous for switching parts of words (known as Spoonerisms) so that a well-oiled bicycle becomes a well-boiled icicle.
A funny piece about funeral lunch ladies was published in The Georgetown Review.
My various writing awards include a Gold IRMA (International Regional Magazine Association) for a story about pasties in Lake Superior magazine. Pasties are a hand-held meat and potato pie eaten by miners on the iron ranges of Minnesota and Michigan, as well as around the world. You can read it here.
I am also a registered dietitian but I’ve tired of trying to convince people that eggs are in. I still write about medicine and nutrition. My master’s thesis, Dietary Variables Affecting Gastrointestinal Blood Loss in Patients Receiving Zomepirac or Aspirin is available should you want to read it!
