Current writing projects include a book on the natural history of California's Central Coast, along with textbooks in geography and environmental science.

Her publications include articles in the "Annals of the Association of American Geographers, Geographical Review, Journal of Historical Geography, CLAG Yearbook, Studies in Comparative International Development, the Brookings Institution Series" and "Focus." "William Wyckoff" is a geographer in the Department of Earth Sciences at Montana State University specializing in the cultural and historical geography of North America.
