I ve been a freelance writer for several years, choosing it after leaving law enforcement to raise my children. I love the freedom it gives me. I have written more than 8,000 articles over just the past three years, although most were from ghostwriting assignments. I am currently writing for an Italian website on current events, news, television, and entertainment. I am a wife, a mother of three girls, and a full time student pursuing a degree in technical writing. Cooking is one of my other passions and my family has become my guinea pigs.
I ve had alot of experience in a number of different industries. My husband and I owned a minor league football team and I took care of the business end of this nonprofit organization. I have waited tables, worked as a gas station clerk, dispatched for a police department, worked a bail bondman and fugitive recovery agent, worked in sales, and was a licensed EMT. I just never could find the one job that really made me happy until I started writing.
