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.
Ohio has some truly exceptional claims to fame, from record-breaking baskets and massive mining buckets to boasting the first professional baseball team and hosting the largest Oktoberfest in the country. Another feather in the Buckeye State’s superlative cap is admittedly a bit bizarre, but no less fascinating. You see, Bellefontaine is home to the oldest concrete street in America, and it’s a huge point of pride for this small Ohio town.
