1pt.gif (86 bytes)Writing, research and reading have always been my passion. After a thirty year career as a teacher-librarian , my avocation of design and gardening came together with a second career as a columnist for a local paper. Three years later I write a column for two magazines , teach a renovation short course at a local university and act as a consultant for local folk. Reproduction furniture and landscape follies are on my 'to do' list. I focus on these three broad topics when I write :Trends in interior and landscape design: fabrics, colour, style etc industry faces to watch , and lists of the best new home products and landscape /nursery products and where to buy. I thoroughly research my columns .

I want the columns to be so fascinating that the guy in the green pick up truck stopped at a red light will pull over to one side to read it. Perhaps it's the landscaper who needs the information/research quickly
and succinctly written to keep ahead of the pack.
