    The devil's in the details, which is why I focus on the details. I'm passionate about the written word and enjoy grammar, which leads me to my top hobby, which is reading as much as I can and then writing reviews for my website (MakingGoodStories.wordpress.com) to provide acclaim and constructive criticism. I earned my Master of Arts in Publishing in Rosemont College in 2014. I am a 2012 graduate of Iowa State University with a Bachelor of Arts in English and minors in German as well as Journalism and Mass Communication.
