Yankee Magazine

Salem, Massachusetts

I have been a devoted fan of Yankee Magazine for years. My favorite magazine, really. For one as obsessed with New England as I, Yankee Magazine remains the ultimate bible on this region. Having been around since the 1930's, they are expert at covering the history, the food, the lifestyle, the traditions, and the unique, humorous quirks of New England. So when I was asked to write an online article for Yankee Magazine, I was thrilled! I chose to write on Salem, Massachusetts; and to those who know me, I'm sure this comes as no surprise. Instead of concentrating on the witch trial history in this particular piece, I wrote of the author Nathaniel Hawthorne's connection to the area, his deep roots and influence remain in that city.

Please go to my article on Yankee Magazine's website here, and feel free to share or comment. This has been an amazing opportunity, and I really appreciate all those who take the time to read my blog!

    I'm looking forward to reading the article. I'm also a fan of Yankee Magazine. I still miss the old format of the 1970s.

  7. The kids are at preschool, I'm sitting on the couch eating icecream, and as im sure you can tell by the flood of comments, I'm catching myself up on the last 6 months of your blog I've missed! (Busiest year of my life!) Last week i got to read your article and was blown away by your writing...you did a fantastic job and i almost jumped through the screen to tackle the annoying person making a fool of himself by daring to question your expertise :)
