From freelancing the Gulf War in Saudi Arabia and Israel in the '90s, to living aboard a sailboat with my husband sons for five years and sailing pregnant, my life has never been dull.
I am on dry land now and currently freelance for newspapers and magazines. Most of my features and news coverage is done for the New York Times.
I love The New York Times. Growing up in New York it was a dream of mine to just get one byline in that paper before I died. I overshot the mark considerably, but wouldn't dream of complaining.

Books I love to read:
Any book by Carl Hiaasen (must be the reporting/Florida living connection)
"Harry Potter" (every single book)
"The Return of Merlin" by Dr. Deepak Chopra. I am smitten by the combination of spiritual and Arthurian concepts and its overall positive message.
As a child my favorites were the Chronicles of Narnia by C.S. Lewis and anything by Madeline L'Engle.

My Wildlife
I kayak and hike in the woods with hubby and children whenever I can.

I am a great supporter of wildlife causes, particularly the Unexpected Wildlife Refuge and was deeply saddened by the loss of it's creator Hope Buyukmihci.

All the animals and I will miss her, though we all know her spirit still keeps her woods safe from predators.
I am also a big fan of the Cedar Run Wildlife Refuge in Medford, N.J. They rehab wildlife with respect without turning them into a side-show.

I am an avid gardener. Must be the New York City childhood and years at sea that give me a passion for dirt, seed and growth.

Adjusting to life on land has been difficult. I think a boat is definitely in our future.
When my husband became a sports page designer for a couple of years I became a sports fan.
My first love is basketball (Dikembe Mutumbo, Eric Snow and Samuel Dalembert are the favorites in our house). Cycling and the new sport Slamball are coming up fast in the running for most watched events.
