When I was a child, I loved listening to my mother read to me, the words painting pictures in my mind. Words had great power for me then, and I learned to use them to paint those pictures for others when I worked at magazines and newspapers over my 30-year career in publishing.
Bringing the world to readers in the form of travel, food and lifestyle articles brings me great joy.
I'm the editor of Lifestyle Magazine in London, Ontario, Canada.
