I write like it's my job - because it is! I have a Master's in English and love words: crossword puzzles, Scrabble games, Wordle, and, of course, good, old-fashioned books.
I'm a writer and editor at OnlyInYourState, and a contributing writer at Cincinnati Magazine. I love the Great Outdoors and am endlessly awestruck by this beautiful country of ours. Coffee keeps me going, yoga keeps me sane, my kids keep me grounded, and my writing keeps me inspired.
There’s something about abandoned places that capture the imagination — whether you believe in ghosts or not. And in Mansfield, Ohio, there is an abandoned place that’s absolutely spellbinding. Formerly known as the Mansfield Reformatory, this historic prison, now known as the Ohio State Reformatory, opened in 1886 and is nearly 130 years old. The reformatory is known to house some of the country’s most violent ghosts, and is considered one of the eeriest abandoned places in Ohio — and America.
