Biography

Before staying home after my son was born, I was a travel agent, trained straight out of high school by the owner/manager. I handled the U.S. market so that the other three agents could each take over either cruises, tour packages, or international travel. I did take some seminars with Career Track during those years, including one on customer service and some on computers.

Today, I manage the team of SEO writers for a major tourism website. My time is limited for writing, and I do not accept work that doesn't pay a minimum of 3 cents per word.

As a hobby, I also review books. I'm often found at the local library chatting with the librarian about upcoming novels that are worthwhile.

Writing Sample

This is a snippet of an article I formed for a travel company. I'm not going to put all of the article as it was 1,000 words long, but the first section is enough.

 

 

Burlington, Vermont, receives high praise for being a healthy city, a great city for families, and a city for arts and culture. To truly embrace the city, it helps to know where to find hidden gems. These establishments do not always make it into the pages of travel guides, but they're must-see highlights for tourists who really want to experience the "Best of Burlington."

 

 

Dining Out

 

 

Put Stone Soup on your list of places to grab a quick lunch. The cafe caters to the vegetarian and vegan crowd, but carnivores also find delicious treats. The extensive salad and lunch bar has dozens of options, but it's the sandwich selection that really hits the spot. Try the roasted vegetable grinder. Carrots, eggplant, green peppers, onions, and zucchini receive a coating of olive oil and garlic before being roast to perfection. Once tender, they're piled on homemade Ciabatta bread, topped with Vermont's Cabot cheddar, and broiled until golden.

 

 

 

El Cortijo is a new contender tucked in an old diner car. Homemade salsa and tortilla chips grace the tables, but the real treat are the arrangements of tacos. Choose from six meats, such as carnitas or fried fish, and then local produce complements each one. Fish tacos come with a red cabbage slaw that is simply to die for. With limited seating and no reservations accepted, arrive early or plan on a minimum 30 minute wait for a table.
