In recent months, I’ve been writing feature articles for Amarillo Magazine, a local glossy published by the Amarillo Globe News.
I’ve written about dog training and local dog trainers: “How to Help Your Dog Avoid Problem Behaviors”
I’ve written about local neighborhoods and developers: “High Plains Visionaries”
I’ve profiled the Amarillo Children’s Home: “Going Places”
I’ve written about the use of Twitter and Facebook when you get married: “Ten Rules for Weddings in the Social Media Age”
I’ve written about beer pairings and profiled Danny Lee of The Big Texan Steak Ranch: “Crafting the Perfect Combo”
I’ve profiled the Oliver family and the oldest saddle shop in Texas: “Saddled with Tradition”
I’ve written about the faith traditions of the Panhandle, along with six individual religious portraits: “Keeping the Faith”
I helped document a local woman’s epic backpacking trip in the wilderness of California: “One Step After Another”
Until the past year, it had been awhile since I’d done much journalism. Most of my clients are outside the Amarillo and Texas Panhandle area. So it’s been nice to get reacquainted with local people and businesses by writing about them.
