I am a member of the Board of Directors of the North American Sea Glass Association and avid sea glass hunter/collector on the Chesapeake Bay in Maryland. I’m pleased to serve as a Columnist for Glassing magazine.  I speak at a number of sea glass conferences around the country. I enjoy doing sea glass research, identification and education. I love sea glass photography and making mosaics, beachcombing canvases, and sea glass terrariums. I’m working on a beachcombing memoir.

Here’s a collection of some of the articles I’ve written about beachcombing. As a writer, there’s nothing more peaceful or serene than going out in a kayak and searching for treasure on a deserted beach. The ideas for my writing always evolve from this place of quiet, and as long as there are still beaches, I’ll be on them looking for sea glass.

(I have a  Facebook sea glass page and share photos of beachcombing finds in real time on my Instagram account!)
