Have a story to tell? Let me help.

For more than 30 years, I’ve helped document the people, places, things and events as part of my work as a journalist in communities in Kentucky, North Carolina and Mississippi. Now, as a freelance writer and editor, I’m helping others in telling the stories about their loved ones.
