I am a freelance writer living in Tennessee. I have a B.A. in English from the University of the South (Sewanee) where I graduated Summa cum Laude and class Salutatorian. I'm currently working on my M.A. in writing and rhetoric.
I have been a reporter for both web sites and newspapers and I taught college English for two years.
I've been a freelance writer since 1996. I am a contributing editor for a national dog magazine. My work appears locally and regionally in a number of newspapers and magazines. I also write several blogs about pets.
I specialize in writing about dogs. I cover dog training (obedience and behavior problems), canine health and nutrition, grooming and anything else dog-related. I've been showing and breeding English Setters since 1987 and I've been active in rescue. I also do field work with my dogs. I presently have five dogs of my own from puppy age to a 13-year-old.
My dogs are currently being trained using clicker training and positive reinforcement but I am also familiar with more traditional forms of dog training.
