Thank you for taking time to stop by. I appreciate your interest in my work as an author, columnist, speaker, and as a person passionate about the preservation of our nation’s heritage barns. It is a joy to receive your emails, calls, and book orders.

The Barn Lady

A Tribute to Tali Sue


For those who remember when newspapers contained articles that were substantive, succinct, well-written, and objective, those days are vanishing. Small newspapers increasingly use material from outside their community, less informative articles, and larger, often meaningless photos as their staff and budgets shrink. They are succumbing to material that is sensationalized or “dumbed down.”

My column will no longer appear in the Enquirer. Readers can find previously published work here and on occasion, additional pieces.
