about me

I've been writing about health, fitness, nutrition and other subjects for almost 20 years, the last ten of which as a freelancer. Before striking out on my own, I was a senior editor at Natural Health magazine in Boston (Brookline Village, Mass., to be more precise), and before that, I was senior editor at Baby Talk magazine in New York City. Way back when, I was an editor at a few trade magazines in Chicago. I've also got a master's degree from the Medill School of Journalism at Northwestern University. (For the complete story, please check out my resume.)

As a journalist, I've covered everything from the savings and loan crisis to baby poop. As a freelancer, I've written for some of the big magazines—Prevention, Self and Shape—as well as smaller ones like The Bark, Walking and Runner's World and several custom publications and websites. I've also just written a book, The Everything Guide to Herbal Remedies (2009). I have served as editor of Boston magazine’s Home & Garden and as the beauty editor for Cooking Light magazine. In addition, I've taught magazine writing classes at Emerson University

As a human being, I'm a fresh-air junkie and sometimes runner (seven marathons under my belt) who's shamelessly attached to my dogs — all rescued (read: non-hunting) field-bred English pointers. For more info on the dogs, check out my "pet projects" (just click on the bone below). I grew up in Mishawaka, Indiana, went to boarding school in Culver, Indiana, college in Oxford, Ohio, and grad school in Evanston, Illinois. I also spent a college semester in Florence, Italy. As a grown-up, I've lived in Chicago, NYC, and Cambridge, Massachusetts. In 2003, I moved to Evergreen, Colorado, got married, and added the name "Connors" to my driver's license.

If you have any questions about my credentials, areas of expertise or availability, please give me a call or send me an e-mail.

Thanks very much!
