The Day Niagara Falls Disappeared

Falls ran dry! It

Jed Porter, was out for a walk and noticed something was different. The

Story
Tagline
Professional freelance writer, and blog writer for Joy's JOY of Wine and A Grave Interest
Introduction

I love wine and will take any chance to sip, savor and share it! Hence, Joy’s JOY of Wine http://joysjoyofwine.blogspot.com, a weekly blog about all things wine. I've been in the industry for 15 years as a winery owner, marketing director, speaker, writer, wine judge, and 100% vino girl!


I'm also a professional freelance magazine and book writer uncorking articles about wine, food, history, travel, cemetery history and culture. My interest in cemetery culture led to another great, or maybe I should say "grave" gig, my weekly blog: A Grave Interest http://agraveinterest.blogspot.com where I get to travel around the country and speak about cemetery topics for genealogy, history and education conferences.


I suppose you could say that wine is my passion, and cemeteries are my diversion ... into another world.
