Nancy Bauer

Freelance writer & wine lover

I'm available for the following assignments: anything to do with Virginia wine, road trips, life after retirement, Plimptonesque participatory journalism, small towns (dying or otherwise), and cheese. And I really really love writing profiles. There's fascinating to be found in everyone. 

*If you don't need any cheese stories, I'd still love to hear what you have in mind.

Hurry Up, Girl

I love writing for and about women who've sailed past mid-life. My blog, Hurry Up, Girl, is all about that, with a special focus on personal quests.


Quests! Isn't that the best word?
