Loved Locked Down… on a Bridge

Sunny weather and breezy days have me walking around Cincinnati more for exercise, and I love some of the things that gives me a chance to see. A favorite walk of mine takes me across the Purple People Bridge, that famous pedestrian only bridge across the Ohio River that links Cincinnati with Northern Kentucky. There’s always something to see on that walk, and the other day, I spent some time examining a new feature of the bridge–the love locks. I…

Fun Times at Aston Oaks Golf Club

A few weeks ago, my wonderful author friend, Mia Sheridan, graciously invited me to participate in a “wine and books” event at Aston Oaks Golf Club. No way would I turn that one down! From 1-4 on Sunday, March 29th, we met with readers, drank some wine , and had a fantastic afternoon. Authors Emerson Show, Tanya Kappes, and Wendy Owens also participated in this signing. I think I speak for all of us when I say we had a…

Inside the New Lobby of the Contemporary Arts Center

Being a TV reporter (even a freelance one) has perks. Today, I got an exclusive first look at the new lobby of the Contemporary Arts Center in downtown Cincinnati, a lobby that has been under construction for the last few months. The team at the CAC poured over $1.1 million into the project, and the results are very impressive. The CAC has a brand new gift shop, welcome desk, and cafe in the old lobby space. The first floor also…

More Details about RT

Remember last week when I said I was thrilled, shocked, and honored to be invited to RT Booklovers Convention this year? When I wrote that post, I said more details were forthcoming, and I’m excited to share them today. New events have just been added to the conference, and one of them focuses on the future of publishing and some of the new trends. I’ve been invited to share some of my thoughts about public relations, media, and image based…

Exciting News: Join Me at RT 2015!

Some Thoughts on Vacations

For the last week, I’ve been on a “vacation.” I put that in quotes because the longer I run my own business, and the more time that passes where I am my own boss (most of the time), I find the old adage to be true. When you run your own business, there never really is a day off from professional pursuits. I think the days of being totally unplugged on vacation and separated from my daily life at home…

Inside My Life: Theater is so much better when you know the stars

I spent a lot of time in my childhood as a theater kid. And I loved it–even if I wasn’t all that talented at it. Starting in the summer after third grade, I took acting lessons at Cincinnati’s Playhouse in the Park, tried out for local theater productions, went after parts in school plays, and even went on a few auditions for local commercials. For awhile, I wanted to be a movie star (haha), and  my love of acting and…

Four Reasons to Party at Fall Fiesta

I always love fall in Cincinnati. With so much to do, the social season is abuzz with gallery openings, parties, the symphony, fashion shows, and more. The city really does come alive in the weeks just before the start of the holiday season. In the middle of all the excitement and a full social schedule, there is one event that I look forward to more than any other, and that’s Cooperative for Education’s Fall Fiesta. It truly is one of…

Our State Fair is a Great State Fair

Before I moved to Oklahoma, I had never been to a really big state fair. It just wasn’t part of my life growing up. The Ohio and Kentucky State Fairs were two hours away from our home in the Cincinnati suburbs, so making an annual pilgrimage wasn’t something we’d done. When I worked at KSLA, Shreveport hosted the annual Louisiana State Fair, but I often heard that as fun as that event was, it paled in comparison to the state…

Oh, Snap! — Taft on Tap

The Taft Museum of Art is one of my favorite Cincinnati spots. The elegant museum has one of the most beautiful gardens in the city, tucked away in a historic part of downtown. The galleries of American art inside this once private residence are some of the best in the region, and in my opinion the Taft is one of the shining gems that makes Cincinnati a great city. Lately, staffers at the Taft have further showcased the venue by…
