My favorite Saturday-night splurge consists of getting lost in a graveyard of long-lost, unusual, and useful information. I love literary intrigue and welcome writing challenges that require technical research, accuracy and interpretation.
I am a graduate of Northwest Missouri State University (bachelors in English), Stetson University (Masters in Reading). and Rollins College (Masters in Liberal Studies).
