JOURNALISM

As a freelance journalist, I have written over 600 articles for websites, magazines, and newspapers in America and around the world, most notably the UK and Australia, concentrating on popular culture, entertainment, celebrity profiles, beauty, fashion, health, parenting, and public interest issues.

Online Journalism

I was thrilled to be asked to become one of the Special Correspondents for the website, www.truthatlas.com, whose motto is "Discover Who's Changing Your World." I've found some fascinating people to profile, so take a look and let me know what you think. I also line-edit most of the features, which not only sharpens the writing but keeps my skills fresh.

The wonderful Rene Syler and I collaborated on her book, Good Enough Mother, which was published in 2008, and she has since turned the concept into a brilliant, game-changing website and brand. I write a monthly beauty column [Click here] for GEM, where I spotlight my inner beauty junkie while writing up many unique and useful beauty products (and yes, I test them all!)

More of my beauty writing can be found at www.mom.me. Just put my name in the search button on the top left. This is a great site for moms of all ages.

Chicago-based film critic Ray Pride and I were the "Two on One" online columnists for the then-fairly-new website, www.nerve.com. These weekly back-and-forths weren't quite so easy as you'd think, back in the days when the dinosaurs roamed aka dial-up. Still, we had a blast doing these and it was a shame that our editor left and the idea was killed.
