I cover a variety of topics, from neighborhoods to religion to projects such as the St. Petersburg Pier. I learn something new every day, whether it’s about preservation issues, the surprises that have cropped up for some homeowners about submerged lands under their docks, or the way people live their faith –- or not! My work includes meeting fascinating people, among them Nobel Laureate Archbishop Desmond Tutu, a Santeria priest who was a devout parishioner at a local Catholic church, and would-be politicians who want to shape their part of the world. I was born in Guyana, South America, when there was no television and grew up a voracious reader. And for the many who ask about my name, there actually is a Waveney river in England (actually, it's called River Waveney).
