I’m Sue Van Fleet, a freelance writer and editor based in Toledo, Ohio. My writing experience runs the gamut from health and lifestyle stories to business and enterprise articles. I am the assistant news editor at The Daily Telegram in Adrian, Mich., but I freelance regularly.

I also am the editor of Lenawee, a quarterly lifestyle magazine covering Lenawee County in Michigan, and Lenawee Pulse, a quarterly health magazine that is inserted in The Daily Telegram and distributed throughout the county. I have also edited a 44-page events magazine for the Toledo market and two community newspapers.

I have had articles published in the Toledo Free Press, a 120,000-circulation weekly; Toledo Business Journal, a monthly business publication; and The University of Toledo Alumni Magazine, which I previously edited.


This feature on a Michigan couple and their daylily business appeared in The Daily Telegram in Adrian, Mich.

Daylily story

I had the pleasure of profiling sculptor Ken Thompson of Blissfield, Mich., for Lenawee, a lifestyle magazine for Southest Michigan.

Ken Thompson profile

I recently went on a mad decluttering spree, so I wrote a column about it for the Fall 2010 issue of Lenawee Pulse, a quarterly magazine devoted to health.


Plasma therapy

I wrote an article about platelet-rich plasma therapy, a fascinating procedure that uses the patient’s own blood to stimulate the healing of soft-tissue injuries, for Lenawee Pulse magazine and GateHouse News Service.


This article on children and gardening appreared in The Daily Telegram in Adrian, Mich., on April 22, 2010.


I wrote this column on aging and some women I admire for the Spring 2010 issue of Lenawee Pulse, a quarterly magazine devoted to health.


Health column

I find that eating in line with my values is surprisingly difficult, so I wrote a column (rant) about it for the Winter 2010 issue of Lenawee Pulse, a quarterly health magazine. It was also posted on the Web site of the newspaper I work for, The Daily Telegram in Adrian, Mich.
