About Me

I'm an independent writer. When I research subjects, I cast a wide net for accurate information from expert sources. My interests span health and wellness subjects. My key intent is to offer useful answers to questions about daily living activities.

I write content for a PDF, a video, and web pages with Office 365 and Libre Office. To create graphics, I pick Inkscape. My workflow is organized with Git. 

Research tools include Open Refine, Google Sheets, Google Scholar, Google Public Data Explorer, Gapminder and Flourish. I've completed the course, Building Your First Power BI Report, to increase my Data Analysis skillset.

I built my websites, www.wlhwords.com and https:// wlhwords20190927021244.azurewebsites.net/ with HTML, CSS, and Bootstrap. Editors I use include Visual Studio Code, Notepad++, and Visual Studio 2019.

My free time activities include watching tennis matches and knitting. And I read poetry, fiction, biographies and the Classics.
