Two-Lane Livin’ Magazine featured more than 35 columnists over a decade, and Lisa Hayes-Minney’s column, “Two-Lane for Life,” appeared in all 123 issues. During her tenure as editor, publisher, and columnist for Two-Lane Livin’, she tried to learn about homesteading and farming from other columnists and her own research; apply the principles of sustainable, simple living to her own life; and share those experiences with her readers. Several columnists from the magazine have compiled their work into books, and we hope you will enjoy their collections as well as this assembly of some of Lisa’s personal favorites from her own column in the magazine.

by Lisa Hayes-Minney
“When I accepted the reporter position at the newspaper, I thought I would work there for the rest of my life. I was younger then, and I thought my “schooling” had provided me the knowledge I needed to manage the job. My first year taught me otherwise. In addition to covering news, local issues, and events, I wrote a weekly column, “Reporter’s Reflections,” which allowed me to give comments and opinions on the news stories I had written. This collection of reflections from my first year will provide some entertainment, but also a glimpse into what the life of a new reporter covering small-town life is like.”
Foreword by poet Lisa M. Sheldon. Second Edition, 6X9″. Originally released in 2009.
