Someone asked me the other day why I decided to become a crime reporter.
"Don't you get tired of all that gruesome stuff?" she asked.
Well, I didn't really choose the crime beat. But since I didn't fall apart at the sight of blood, dead bodies and gory accident scenes, my reputation as a good criminal reporter began to grow, and I began to develop a somewhat thicker skin.
Although I have worked in a small town, I was born and raised in Lexington and am a graduate of the University of Kentucky.
