Author Biography

Author and freelance technical writer, Andrea Barham is the acceptable face of pedantry: while she is a big fan of the world, she feels there should be less wrongness and more rightness in it. Painfully aware of her inability to correct the bigger issues such as war, poverty and global warming, she is concentrating her skills on smaller issues more suited to her skills, which consists of 'looking stuff up'. By correcting common misconceptions, such as the belief that your heart stops when you sneeze, she is hoping that this will have a knock-on effect and eventually all wrongs will be righted, but she is not holding her breath (which, indidentally, one cannot die from, as is commonly believed). Please support her in her crusade.
