Other Writing

I am now a Ghostwriter for StoryTerrace! StoryTerrace is a company that matches clients with ghostwriters to produce beautifully-published memoirs and biographies about their lives. If you are interested in working with me to produce a book about your life, please contact StoryTerrace directly.

I am writing travel articles on road trips in the West for The World Was Here First like “10 Best Stops on the Phoenix to Tucson Drive” and “10 Best Stops on a Las Vegas to Grand Canyon Road Trip.”

New project! And a completely new genre for me. I am working on a novel about the civil rights and feminist movements titled “Frankie and Johnnie.”

I wrote an op-ed in the Arizona Daily Star on raising the minimum wage in Tucson. Here’s another one on the anti-voting bills in the Arizona state legislature: The State Legislature is Trying to Make Voting Hard. Don’t Let Them.

I’m obsessed with the Washington Nationals, and I wrote about it for Medium during their epic 2019 World Series run: On Natitude.

I wrote a series of articles on The Secrets of Archival Research for Medium.

Check out a list of my favorite biographies on the Pima County Public Library website: “Historical Biographies That Captivate and Entertain!”

From 2010 to 2015, I was the archivist for the Civil Rights History Project, a joint oral history project at the Library of Congress and Smithsonian’s National Museum of African American History. While working on the project, I wrote the following blog posts and essays:

An article on the history of the song “We Shall Overcome” for the Library of Congress Magazine (p. 8-9): https://www.loc.gov/lcm/pdf/LCM_2014_0910.pdf

I have written many book reviews in social sciences, African American history, biography, and memoir for Library Journal for over ten years.

I had a LiveJournal blog from 2004 to 2010! And it still exists. I can’t believe how much I wrote. Most of this is me trying really hard to be clever during graduate school in Iowa.
