About the BellaOnline Today in History Editor

Curious about me? Heres the short version of my own history

June 1995: I leave university thinking Im going to work at a newspaper or magazine. I ended up teaching journalism at the international school I graduated from. Thus started my career as an English teacher. Ive taught history as well as literature and journalism partly because Im deeply interested in stories. I dont think you can immerse yourself in any one of those subjects properly without touching on the other two. Recalling the people, places and events of almost every day in history reminds us that the stories we are living now had beginnings we might have forgotten. Its important, and sometimes downright fun, to remember them.

July 2011: Looking for an outlet for my craving to write, I stumble upon BellaOnline and become its Literary Fiction editor. I thought I would easily be able to write a weekly article, but everyone knows an English teachers workload is Herculean (and some might say Sisyphean)! Four years later, I love the fact that my articles can still be read on that site. They are evidence of my history with BellaOnline.

April 2014: I am currently wondering where my story will take me, or vice versa. Writing is still very much a lure, so Ive found myself back here with potentially a whole new audience.

Our stories are at once epic and episodic, intimate and universal. Ever since we started using the calendar (in 1752 if you speak English), weve had at least 365 stories a year to share. Every day in history must be a significant day for someone somewhere in the world. I hope youll like my retelling of a few of these stories.

If youre viewing the articles on my site by subject, the most recent ones Ive written will have five stars or flowers next to each of their titles ().

If you have an idea for a story, feel free to send me your suggestion and set me off on the research for it, which Im sure Ill enjoy doing. The more obscure, the better!

Happy reading!
