Articles ahoy!

When I left The Daytona Beach News-Journal, I made sure my byline would appear for a little longer: A sidebar and If You Go box on the Jan. 7-8, 2011, re-enactment of the Dade Massacre in Bushnell, Fla.

Behind the Scenes: Kim Harrison interview

I very rarely get nervous interviewing someone these days, but I got tongue-tied when I interviewed New York Times bestselling author Kim Harrison about her book “Pale Demon,” the ninth book in The Hollows series.

For why I feel that way, check out my review ‘Heaven’ chronicles 2 women’s gripping trip from hell. (Review should be […]

I’ve interviewed artists, actors and people in far out fields, such as steamboat operators! My co-workers are all educated and well-read. You can read books, screen movies and try products for review purposes for free […]
