Southern Living

For several years, I wrote stories for the state editions of Southern Living magazine, including Tennessee Living, Texas Living, Georgia Living, and Carolina Living. I loved traveling the South to interview real characters and see distinctly Southern places. Some of my favorite experiences include meeting Waynelle Strachan, the first farmer to grow bluebonnets for cut flowers, outside El Paso and at her ranch near Big Bend; seeing Yee Haw Letterpress in action just as Knoxville was reviving downtown in the early 2000s; traipsing through Moody Forest in South Georgia to see old growth longleaf pine; and writing about the garden of a hometown friend, Gayle Fisher.
