I have a background in biology, anatomy, and movement arts. I can't get enough of scientifically sound research and I consider the database of the National Center for Biotechnology Information "light morning reading." I research and cross-compare sources to make sure I'm writing based on the most accurate and recent peer-reviewed findings.
In April 2018 I edited for a new edition of Living with Allergies (Rosen Publishing), a science textbook for a 7th grade reading level. Book specs stipulated a complete re-write of each chapter introduction, new title heads for each chapter and subsection, and a full re-write of the final chapter. All data was checked for accuracy and new data was introduced in the form of text and charts. Click the image to read the entire text, complete with my revisions.
