Fiction & Creative Nonfiction
Most of my short fiction and lyrical nonfiction (decidedly non-journalistic) has been published in print-only literary journals, although some of these works are online and a few have audio files.
As managing editor at TCTMD, I oversee a crackerjack team of five health journalists. I host the Heart Sounds podcast and the video program, On Record, plus manage a little bit of writing myself. Before joining TCTMD, I was a writer and editor at theheart.org/Medscape covering stories on heart disease, health policy, and related topics.
Columns & Rants
Narcissism, busyness, boobs, grief, piano-playing, childlessness, social media, work wear, Olympic hopes, reinvention, unproductivity–I’ve squawked about all of this, and more.
Kayaking, skate-skiing, open-water swimming, rock-climbing, mountain-biking: I do lots of fun things outdoors and people have occasionally paid me to write about it.
Lots of travel, still, but not as much time for writing about and selling it. My blog holds most of my travel writing now; my older clippings are mostly old-school news print made into PDFs.
