Stories: Travel pieces, features, and book reviews
Squint at anything long enough and the story angles come flying out faster than you can catch ’em. Here are a few I succeeded in catching for publications such as Yankee Magazine, The Boston Globe, Arthur Frommer’s Budget Travel, Plymouth County Business Magazine, Green Energy Times, Curve Magazine, and more. I don't have PDFs for some stories - they are represented here as they appeared in the publication, verbatim.
