Bargain Sleuth Book Reviews

I’ve been reading and writing my whole life. I grew up on Nancy Drew and Trixie Belden and Newbery titles and anything I could get my hands on. I wrote stories all the time, too. All my teachers said I had a knack for conversational style, so that led me to go to school for journalism–broadcast journalism, in fact.

I ended up working at a local TV station writing the news and even did a stint at the local newspaper before being laid off.  I also worked at a bookstore/coffee shop and spent some time working at a local library. About ten years ago I started writing my own website as a consumer advocate, hence the name the Bargain Sleuth. I’m always looking for a deal, especially when it comes to books!

I live in Green Bay, Wisconsin, with my husband and four children. I work part-time at an internationally-known company, writing copy for one of their websites.
