Content Creation

As a writer and an avid genealogist, I understand there can be no greater mystery story than that of our own families.  Who are our ancestors? What did they do with their lives?

And, because I believe in preserving history as well as the power of the written word, I specialize in helping to tell the stories of a person or family's personal connections to history.

Now I have the privilege of using words to help bring into focus important stories about people, their families and their history.
