The final revisions are almost done on a new project.
The book, to be published through Upstate Medical University, tells the stories of spiritual care chaplains and volunteers who share their presence and support with patients and their loved ones. The first printing is underwritten by a generous grant from the Friend In Deed program at Upstate. Look for it soon!

- I am a free-lance writer specializing in profiles of news-makers and Central New York business news and trends. I have taught newswriting and ethics courses at the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications at Syracuse University. I earned a bachelor's degree in English literature from the State University College at Oswego (1977) and a master's degree in newspaper journalism from Newhouse (1999). I began teaching at Newhouse in 2000, and I continue to teach there. I took early retirement from The (Syracuse) Post-Standard in May 2007 after 27 years of working there as a reporter, copy editor, news designer, front-page editor, editorial writer, night city editor and bureau chief. I have written frequently for CNY Business Exchange, CNY The Good Life and several other regional magazines. I've also won awards for newspaper editing and design. Among the courses that I've taught at SU are: NEW205 (introduction to news writing), NEW305 (intermediate writing and reporting), NEW345 (critical perspectives on the news), NEW605 (Boot Camp for incoming grad students), NEW608 (Principles of journalism and ethics) and NEW617 (advanced reporting and writing grad course).
