Barbara Passero is a transplant from northeastern Ohio. Barbara fell in love with Boston while on a visit during her senior year of college, and she's been happy to live near the ocean ever since. Her love of sandpipers, the small, quick-moving shore birds, led her to name her company SandpiperCREATIVE.
A member of the Cambridge Academic Editors Network (CAEN), Barbara provides freelance writing and editing services for publishers, graduate students, educators, businesses, and nonprofit organizations. She writes and produces all the publications for SandpiperCREATIVE and updates its webpagfes.
After reading over 100 articles, chapters of books, etc., Barbara produced Opposing Viewpoints: Energy Alternatives for Greenhaven Press in 2006. This book compares and contrasts use of fossil fuels with several kinds of alternative sources such as wind energy, nuclear power, solar energy.
