I am ...
an avowed “Tombstone Tourist” with an avid interest in cemeteries, history, photography and travel. I have researched and written my weekly cemetery culture blog, A Grave Interest for over five years and speak throughout the U.S. on topics dealing with secret symbols, cemetery records, digital death and spooky cemeteries for libraries (includes LEU credits), genealogical, historical and educational sessions and conference
I'm also a professional freelance magazine writer who does travel features, a regular wine column for several magazines, a weekly wine blog called Joy’s JOY of Wine http://joysjoyofwine.blogspot.com, and a monthly genealogy column for Inside Toronto. In my spare time, I do theatre acting and Improv comedy. I suppose you could say writing is my passion and cemeteries are my diversion … into another world.
Please visit my website for more information and a detailed explanation of each lecture. Indiana libraries allow LEUs for presentations. If other states are interested in offering credits, please contact me.
