As a writer, I offer in depth coverage of issues effecting our lifestyles from health and family life to politics, fitness, food and more. I add a reassuring slant that takes the focus off fear-based journalism, a global perspective to expand our view on universal issues and humor to take the edge off serious subjects. My goal is to educate, inform and entertain my readers with stories that impact their lives and show them how their lives impact others. If they have a little fun along with that, all the better.
