  • During her career as a journalist, DB has had a slew of incredible experiences, including bottle-feeding a baby addax, getting a behind-the-scenes look at the filming of an episode of Ghost Hunters, and researching the unidentified and unclaimed remains of war veterans, to ultimately ensure them a proper and respectful burial.
  • DB has also been fortunate enough to aid in the preservation of Native American history firsthand, while taking part in a series of archaeological digs throughout the Appalachian Mountains.
  • She is grateful to have been recognized with awards for her press and nature photography, for her work documenting summertime Shakespearean theater performances, and capturing the majesty of Niagara Falls.

Experience

After years of making her teachers think she was taking thorough notes when she was really just writing fiction, DB decided to turn her love of writing into something for the greater good. Her professional writing career started out in the newspaper industry, where she became an award-winning journalist known for her focus on community activism, volunteerism, and advocating for social change. After being fortunate enough to interview World War II veterans on their experiences during the war, she turned her attention to historical research and uncovering the strange, bizarre, and often-overlooked stories of ordinary — yet extraordinary — individuals.

Education

DB has a degree in English from West Virginia University with a focus in medieval literature and journalism.
