M.B. Bishop

Freelance Writer

Having spent more than 35 years as a writer, I love to tell the stories of the fascinating people I meet. My goals are to come up with questions nobody else has asked and find new angles on old topics. I like to bring readers information that makes their lives easier, richer or maybe just more fun.
