Professional Experience

From our ridge in Kentucky, I write and publish about design-related issues, interiors, and personal memoir pieces on home, farm, family and place. I have also written some food and travel pieces. If you need a writer who can meet a deadline in a single bound and write well on a variety of topics, I'm your gal. I can also travel and am no more than six hours from many locations in the United States. [I also moonlight as an architectural historian and farmer/gardener and for the past four years have kept a blog at] My first book, THE PANTRY-ITS HISTORY and MODERN USES was published in 2007 [Gibbs Smith] and is the first, and only, design book on the domestic history of the pantry in American homes. It is now available exclusively through my website at and media copies are available free of charge.
