I have been a reporter for ten years and cover the historic town of Hudson, Ohio. I’ve won the Press Club of Cleveland’s Ohio Excellence in Journalism award in 2013 and 2014 and the Ohio Newspaper Association awards in 2011, 2013 and 2014. I finished my first novel, Impending Love and War, Oct. 8, 2014, and I am working on my second novel, Impending Love and Death.
Impending Love and War takes place in the fictional town of Darrow Falls in Northeast Ohio. It has a two-story white church with a steeple facing the Town Square where residents celebrate the Fourth of July. The story involves riding on the Ohio Canal, runaway slaves, and a math instructor from Western Reserve College. The farmhouse where the story begins was inspired by this yellow house at Hale Farm in Bath Ohio. The book is available as an ebook or in print at http://www.thewildrosepress.com.
