Welcome to my renovated website. If you are a first-time visitor, I am very glad you are here. I first started having a website in anticipation of the publication of my first book, Brewing Battles: A History of American Beer. Brewing Battles was published in December, 2007. I have had a lot of fun talking and writing about the book, beer, and the alcoholic beverages industry.
I have had a WordPress blog for almost four years. This new site is my attempt to put the blog front and center and to give my readers a better sense of my presence in social media. Since the publication of Brewing Battles, I have started work on a new project, Dames, Dishes, and Degrees. This new website provides an opportunity for me to showcase the work I am now doing.
This new site is not completely done yet. You may notice “Under Construction” signs on some of the pages. Please visit frequently to see further updates.
I will continue to write about beer, women, history, and nursing. I may have some things to say about politics as well. If you have been following me for any part of the five years I have been online, thank you so much. I hope you will continue to visit; leaving comments would be great. If you want to contact me, please click on the contact page. Cheers!
