A journalist for nearly 20 years, Denise Ritter has been a reporter, copy editor, news editor and page designer.
She has worked for the The San Jose Mercury News, Miami Herald, and most recently, The Plain Dealer.
She left the newspaper business to pursue her passion: Taking care of her family and home-schooling her kids. When she's not patching up skinned knees, shooing the cats out of potted plants, or teaching her daughters the difference between transitive and intransitive verbs, she is working from her home office as a freelance copy editor.
