BookLoons.com and MyShelf.com
Between 2007-2010, I crafted about 100 book reviews for these two amazing online book review sites. I primarily reviewed nonfiction books addressing environmental, sustainable, holistic health & wellness, green parenting and similar themes.
Planet Habit (the original)
In the past, I penned an online column, also titled Planet Habit (as is my current blog found on my website, DebKincaid.com), which was created in a Q & A format, and related research on a variety of green themed topics. Dozens of columns! Occasionally, you may run across one of them in a Google search.
Short Stories & Poetry
I’ve had several of my short-short stories published in online magazines, and a poem, Bamako Beat, published in LUX MAGAZINE, a small press literary magazine.
