I am a freelance writer, editor, and Web consultant who primarily covers health, travel, and lifestyle topics. I have written for Redbook, Cooking Light, The Travel Channel, and The Writer's Chronicle, among others. I recently wrote a couple of travel guides about Houston and am the Blog Managing Editor at PsychCentral.com. Previously, I was the editor of InTheFray.org and a blog editor for Photo District News.
I like to pay homage to the importance of books—print, digital, and otherwise—and reading in our lives because that's what got me here, cliched as it sounds. This blog is my attempt to do just that.
Have story ideas or know about some cool new literary or literacy-related project I should cover? Send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Or find me on Twitter (@lnathan).
