The Wilkes Gazette

Today I am pleased to let my readers know that my first articles for the Wilkes Gazette newspaper have been added to the online website at this afternoon. I am very happy to again be serving as a freelance writer for Teresa Maynor's newspaper published in North Wilkesboro, NC. It is currently a weekly publication.

I contributed a restaurant review for J. Armonk's Restaurant Reviews column. I reviewed the local Sagebrush Steakhouse in Wilkesboro, NC. I ordered one of the advertised Five for $5.00 lunch specials and was very pleased with the Grilled Chicken Tips. In this time of economic hardship, the restaurant exceeded my expectations as to ambience, cleanliness, friendliness, quality and value.

In addition to the restaurant review, I am extremely proud to have a new weekly column entitled Jeanne's Travels Around Wilkes County. I will be highlighting places and events in Wilkes County which are pet-friendly. I will be collaborating with my dog Red. I had previously mentioned Red in my blog posts regarding our travels around the Outer Banks, NC (OBX) earlier in this year. We will highlight Wilkesboro's local dog park in our column next week. So, please continue reading my blog posts here or please visit

My interest with writing began by composing poems about nature in my childhood. I also co-wrote a play in my 4th grade class when I lived in New Rochelle, NY. It generated enough positive feedback that my class put on the play in the school auditorium. I was fortunate to have a lead part. After my high school graduation, I entered the working world.
