I write compulsively, about everyone and everything!Mostly, I write reviews of exhibitions in art galleries and museums, travel pieces and the occasional recipe.  I also review exhibition catalogues and art books. Occasionally, I explore gluten-free recipes, passing on the most successful recipes to my readers at Infobarrel.
My latest project is Ride the Rocket - Toronto Enabled a humorous autobiographical guide to Toronto, available om paper back and e-book formats.
I write for all sorts of sites but Infobarrel is definitely the best. If you'd like to join me sign up here.
