TRADE REFERENCES
As a longtime writer/editor/publisher, I know the value of professional research. Marj Atkinson, who has done research for me, is the best. She sets the standard and has extensive experience – from years of library employment to staff assignments at the Sixth Floor Museum at Dealey Plaza in Dallas. If it happened, Marj knows how to track down the details quickly and accurately and do it with a smile. Need to know and know now? Simple. Just Ask Marj.
