I Love Writing About Nature! 

I’d love to help you with your next nature writing project, whether it is personal (a poem of tribute for that nature-loving person in your life), for your website (a blog about something from the natural world), or for a periodical (feature article for newspaper or magazine). I have decades worth of experience in exploring nature and writing about it.

My time engaged in outdoor activities, exploration, and observation (along with a whole lot of research) has given me a knowledge of plant and animal life.

Most recently, I have generated a weekly nature column, published in the Crosby-Ironton Courier, for over five years. Outdoor adventures – fishing, hiking, kayaking, foraging in the woods, bird watching, etc. – provided me with writing material. Nature never runs out of things to see, explore, observe!

It’s simple: I love nature!
