FEATURES & COLUMNS  

I write features that explore the tangled threads of people's lives to reveal their struggles and triumphs. I also have shared my own experiences. After training as a wildland firefighter, I searched through swamps and thickets in Texas for remnants of the Space Shuttle Columbia after it exploded on re-entry.  I also smuggled a baby into Cuba, but that's a different story.
