I am a freelance writer based in Hawaii. I write about intriguing people, places and experiences wherever I find them in the world. Most people have interesting stories to tell which I enjoy sharing.

Some of my favorite articles are at the right. If you’d like to read more, visit my Portfolio for many of the pieces I've written during the last few years.

I am the editor of Kauai People, a weekly newspaper. I was the founding editor of Kauai Woman magazine and I freelance for other regional and national publications. I was awarded the 2005 Small Business Administration Journalist of the Year award for Kauai County and the 2006 Women in Business Roundtable Journalist of the Year.

I usually take pictures when I'm out on assignment. Some of my photos are on the far right. Click each photo to see a few more.

I am available for assignments. Please contact me to talk about your project.

In Tune with Life

Theater manager Tony Kilbert shares his love of music and life with Kaua`i

Command central for the Kaua`i Community College’s Performing Arts Center (PAC) is a small office wallpapered with posters of artists who have performed there through the years. In the midst of the posters, surrounded by a calendar chock full of upcoming theater events, stacks of promotional materials, books and a computer from which there is almost always music playing, sits Tony Kilbert, a man who appears to be the calm in the middle of the storm.

Peace Within the Rhythms

Drummer Kris Thomas finds freedom in music

It would appear that high speed drumming would be a frenzied activity, but for professional drummer and percussionist Kris Thomas, it's a voyage into the depth and freedom of music. With his dynamic stick speed, mastery of multiple styles of contemporary drumming from explosive rock and roll and high energy Latin salsa to blues, funk and reggae, Thomas is at peace with it all.

Water Women

Making a life on the ocean

Spend one moment with Celeste Harvel and you know she loves her life. You'll probably hear her first - her hearty, free laugh or her exuberant exhortations to her windsurfing students at 'Anini Beach. Combine that with her smiling face surrounded by tight ringlets of hair, and you know you've met a woman who is happy to the core.

The Kindness of Strangers

If it hadn’t been for the captain and crew of the container ship Horizon Reliance, we may never have known the fate of my brother-in-law Stephen J. Brown. We still don’t have all the answers and, realistically, we never will. Thanks to the humanity and compassion of those aboard the Reliance, we know enough to understand and accept that he’s gone.

Traditional Canoes Provide Connection to Polynesian Voyagers

For the dedicated men who have worked for 10 years to build Kaua'i its own, traditionally designed voyaging canoe, the yearning to feel connected with their ancestors is strong." Just to understand and feel and experience the cultural background of how Hawaiians came to Hawai'i, and what the Polynesians in general as a culture accomplished throughout the Pacific," is reason for building Kaua'i's soon-to-sail voyaging canoe Namahoe, said Dennis Chun.






Life on the Garden Island comes alive in this collection of more than 50 touching, inspiring and humorous personal stories woven together to paint a picture of Kauai. Edited by Pamela Brown.
