Welcome to my corner of the Internet! I was born a Gemini in Youngstown, Ohio, as Elizabeth but became “Betsy” when my parents had a heated argument. I was a longtime journalist for the Associated Press, and I really enjoy writing profiles and personal essays. My articles have appeared in The New York Times, The Boston Globe, USA Today, The Washington Post, Newsweek and Real Simple. I also wrote a column for Women’s Magazine in Boulder, Colo.
Currently, I live in small town Hanover, N.H., and I’m completing something that looks like a memoir. I am a former New Yorker and carb/cheese/wine addict. I also love talking about my dogs Ronan and Jackie O.
