These are things I’ve written or contributed to. Hopefully this will grow.



Wandering Around South Jersey

My first book, where I both wrote and did the photography. Features 31 places in the lower 8 counties of New Jersey – Cape May, Atlantic, Ocean, Burlington, Cumberland, Gloucester, Camden, and Salem. All places in the book were selected from the website. The premise was to pick a good mix of places that were both well known and little known. Lucy the Elephant and the Carranza Memorial are better known, while few have heard of Thompson’s Beach or Clark’s Landing. For the most part, the book expands on what is written on the site. Most of the photos in the book are different than those on the site.

Available on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, or directly through my publisher. Also available in most South Jersey book stores and the Philly area. If yours doesn’t have it, ask them to order it.

  1. Ryan,
    I just picked up your “Overlooked Corners of Eastern NC” in the public library and read it cover-to-cover. It was well penned and that comes from someone who’s spent five decades as a writer and editor. As a lifelong NC resident and beach-goer, I was impressed with how many places you found I’ve never heard of. You should think about coming to Scuppernong books in Greensboro and doing a reading. I’m sure Brian Lampkin would love to host you. Thanks for helping me while away a most pleasant hour.
