WEB DESIGN & GRAPHICS
I started building websites in 2001 with GeoCities, and transitioned to HTML, CSS & PHP based design in the early 2000’s, learning through online classes and hands-on experience. In the mid-2000’s I started working with WordPress, and have favored it over hand-coding for more than a decade for its ease of use, many integrations, and endless template options. It’s the best platform for those wanting to update and tweak their own site after the initial setup. Although I have used Photoshop, my graphics editor of choice is Paint Shop Pro, which I also learned via online classes and found to be the perfect tool for my uses. I prefer to work with web hosts who use Cpanel, but have also set up websites with GoDaddy and other hosts with custom dashboards. I am now offering hosting under my own reseller account, making it easier for those who’d like to leave the details up to me.
WRITING & EDITING
I have been writing for the Historical Novel Society‘s quarterly book review magazine since 2011, and was appointed the US Children’s & YA Reviews Editor in 2014. You can view the staff page here and my review page here. I have also contributed several full-length articles, but they are only visible to members. I have written hundreds of articles and reviews for my two primary websites: Historical-Fiction.com and Royal-Intrigue.net. Education-wise, I graduated high school in 1997 and attended Floyd College (now Georgia Highlands) from 97′ – 99′ with a focus on Secondary Education and Art.
