"Cows are my passion. What I have ever sighed for has been to retreat to a farm and live entirely surrounded by cows–and china." Charles Dickens

Other Writing

I have been a part-time freelance writer for over twenty years, contributing design-related articles and personal essays to such publications as VictoriaEarly HomesColonial HomesYankee and Old-House Interiors. I have also contributed to regional magazines and local newspapers.

In 2007 I wrote The Pantry––Its History and Modern Uses, published by Gibbs Smith. Signed copies are available exclusively through my website [for personal or retail/wholesale purposes]. It is the first, and still only, book on the domestic history and design of pantries in the American home.
