I am American, having moved to Liverpool, England, in 1998 to marry my British husband. In my Jounrnalism career, I've been a marketing copywriter, newspaper reporter and photographer, magazine editor, proofreader, computer layout artist, I was a volunteer writer for a radio station and I was an overworked, overjoyed print production manager. Currently, I work in a call centre because the digital age has eliminated the need for print shops and the few jobs remaining are hard to get for those of us over 50. In my spare time, I do freelance editing/proofreading and spend a lot of time with my cats and dog. I'm a born-again Christian and a vegetarian (yes, I miss meat, but I love animals too much to eat them anymore; it's a personal choice not a judgment).
I love puzzles, current events, animals and shopping for handbags, besides my cleaning obsession (it's a challenge keeping a house tidy with 3 rampaging cats and a messy husband who thinks our house is like the Starship Enterprise: No, honey, the house will not clean itself like the big, imaginary spaceship.)
