An ad inquiry turned into a writing gig for a Monroe man.

Daniel Schultz, a longtime landscape professional, is now a contributor for “Michigan Home and Lifestyle,” a quarterly magazine that showcases homes, design and food from Michigan.

Schultz owns Daniel Lee Designs and is a landscape architect and designer. His clients are businesses and residents, and he’s worked all over the state for more than 25 years.

Schultz said he had read “Michigan Home and Lifestyle” a few times and recently called the publication.

“I was speaking with a couple people about possibly doing some advertising. We got to talking, and they said, ‘I want you to talk to the editor,’” he recalled.

“They said, ‘You really know what you’re talking about,’” said his wife of 35 years, Donna, owner of Donna Spa & Salon of Monroe.
