About Along the Hudson

Photo: J. Deming

One of my ancestors is named Lewis Dudley Deming. He was born in 1820 and spent most of his life on the Hudson River as a boat pilot and captain between Albany and New York City. Though I will never be a riverboat pilot, I can’t help but feel the same draw to the Hudson that Lewis presumably felt. For some reason, my life has led me here, and it’s where my family calls home: the Hudson River Valley.

I’ve spent the past decade of my life either on or around this river. As a result, it provides me with a constant source of inspiration. Some of my best story ideas have come from quiet mornings, exploring or hiking along its banks.

That’s what you’ll receive if you sign up — my stories from Along the Hudson.

I will share original fiction every Monday and creative writing challenges/prompts on Friday.

Thanks so much for stopping by. I hope to see you around!
