Meet the Author

I grew up in Southern California, graduated with a degree in History from U.C. Berkeley, moved to Colorado for a M.A. in History, then to Seattle for my MLS. Yes, I'm also a business librarian, conducting research for high tech startup and working as a counselor for the local Small Business Development Center (thus, the Librarian Manifesto under construction on this website). On a completely different front, I'll be finishing my diploma in Irish Studies from the National University of Ireland in Galway and Regis University in Denver. My nonfiction includes foreign investment in the American and Canadian West 1870-1914, and the impact of public policy on literature--which circles around to long-neglected Maria Edgeworth and the 19th Irish literature question.
