Award-winning travel and lifestyle writer focusing on culture, nature, food and wine
Introduction
I travel to find the untold stories and magic of a place--culture, nature, dining and wine. My experience comes to the page and web in published articles gathered at Ticket to Magic and posts at Hill Country Mysteries.


Bragging rights
I'm an explorer. I know where to find the best coconut pie and most amazing craft brew in Texas. I've been high and low for a story of hot air ballooning and white-water river rafting. In two old towns, almost every resident I met had a personal ghost story to tell. I wrote about a coastal town where resilience is personified in yard sculptures created from hurricane-killed trees. And I believe the best adventure is the one I'll find tomorrow.

Fun writing this lifestyle story about how an art-collector showcased her contemporary art collection in a beautiful San Antonio historic home without compromising the integrity of the collection or the home.  Good ideas for blending styles.
SAN ANTONIO â€" When Belinda Valera Molina found a statu-esque Victorian-era home in the King William Historic District, its location next to the San Antonio River clinched her decision to buy. Built in 1891, the 6,000-square-foot house holds a wealth of period detail such as original longleaf pine floors, 14-foot ceilings bounded by sculpted molding, transoms above interior doors for airflow and stained-glass accent windows. Steps lead from a...

Sarge and Mellow and the chance of a lifetime
Around thirty years ago I worked with a big tough-as-nails, sweet-inside guy named Larry. He was the kind of man who could do two tours on the ground in Viet Nam, come back with nightmares and live his way through and out of them. Eight years ago he found a...

Romantic Galveston
A Galvestonian take on Mardi-Gras decoration. I visit Galveston every chance I get.  Most folks go for the beaches--32 miles of them.  But I'm drawn as much by tangy island air and quirky character, not to mention Victorian architecture and a historic downt...

Have you ever thought how nice it would be to have someone listen to every word you say, who's always happy to see you and shows it every time you touch him?  Now you have a chance.

Mellow and Sarge, best friends and sweet tabbies in need of a home. Sarge was the constant companion of my friend Larry, a hard-as-nails, soft-inside guy who died of cancer a couple of years ago.  Now his widow Kim has to give the cats up, a second heartbreak in a short period.  Please contact me if you want a couple of great companions.

Fun interview and story about a couple whose home and studio combine their love of Mexico with individual flair.
The Salmons designed their 1,700-square-foot house around traditional Mexican elements with a detour through New Mexico, where they lived early in Roberto's career as a college professor. Warm white plaster walls make a neutral background for splashes of red, fuchsia, gold and turquoise in art and fabrics, including antique Talavera ware, bright-colored figures of saints and hand-woven fabrics. Hand-painted tiles add another layer of interest a...
