When you pick up one of my books, I hope it’s apparent that I puts loads of effort into the research and the writing. The process is difficult and time consuming, but it’s often fun. Best of all, I enjoy knowing that I’m making it easier for people to get outside, get active and get connected with the landscape.

I love to hear from readers about their experiences with the books. If one of the books helped you have a great day getting active outdoors, please let me know. Similarly, if you came across an error that slipped through the editing process or if you have suggestions for improving the books, please get in touch.

And finally, if you have a question about hiking, biking, or other outdoor pursuits in Illinois or the Chicago area, I might be able to help and usually am able to respond within a day or two.
