In addition to being a gardening magazine columnist, herbalist, and garden writer, I’m also a confident speaker. I love to teach gardening and herbalism classes. If you are interested in booking me as a speaker for your event, please contact me.

Local area lectures and online speaking appearances are free; I charge a reasonable fee for events outside of my local area. Please contact me with details about the event and we can discuss the specifics.

In addition to writing for Home Garden Joy, business clients, and marketing agencies worldwide, I am also a fiction writer.

If time permits, I’ll read passages from my new work. Hope to see you there!
