I’m a New Hampshire–based freelance journalist. As a contributor to Slate, I have written about Donald Trump and Southern Baptists, the future of the Christian Left, adults who read YA literature and why parents online make parenting sound so terrible, among other topics. I have also written for the New York Times magazine,Politico Magazine, the Wall Street Journal, the Awl, Marie Claire, and many others. I often report on American culture, women, and Christianity, or the intersection of any of the above.
In 2009, I went on a long solo road trip across the country and back. This site began as the space in which I wrote about that trip. (Hence “Public Road.”) And now it’s the space for other things.
