Sally's passion for the written word has been manifest since she could hold a pencil. With a professional background spanning land use planning, civil engineering and surveying, and industrial pipefitting, and an avocational zeal for American history, she brings broad experience to her writing. She has prepared studies and reports, crafted poetry, short stories and biographical profiles, and produced promotional and marketing materials. "Living Historian Quarterly," "Organic Gardening," "Ancient Times," and "Kennebec" have published some of her articles. Besides her weekly blog (http://brasscastlearts.blogspot.com), she is currently editing a friend’s novel, producing blog posts for a firm which addresses flooding issues, and finishing her own novel for 2012 publication.
