I have worked as a freelance writer, researcher, and copy editor for over twelve years. Research has been my passion since I was a child. I started with the set of encyclopedias that my parents kept in our family room, and then moved to libraries and eventually, graduate school. My love of learning has helped me grow my knowledge base to include varied topics ranging from literature to genealogy to world cultures. I’m also a bit of a grammar nerd and am particularly fond of the comma. You can visit me online at any of these links.
