What I do for OP in five words or less: strategize, plan, manage, advocate, write
The best part about working for OP: The people – seriously. And having my own printer.
Something you don’t know about me: I hold a doctorate in English – my research focus is early American literature (I love the Puritans!)
One weird fact about the town I grew up in: I didn’t grow up in a single place….the last town that I lived in was a village on the island of Crete – Chersonissis. Everything closed down in the afternoon so that the villagers could nap. Then they’d wake up and go to work in the bars to keep the German and British tourists happily sloshed.
If I could have any job in the world (besides the one I have now), I would: write novels set in early America.
