About me

It’s always been words.

My high school essay on the old goat in the attic got an A even though the topic was the old coat in the attic. After that I got glasses.

Now freelance writing fulltime, with strong interest in websites.

Oh, and travel writing. I might be more a late starter in the travel writing sector, but I intend to be a late finisher.
