Bev Snyder has worked as a writer and editor for 20-plus years in the health care, automotive and office furniture industries. She is intrigued by the idea of living small: Bev and her husband recently traded in their family-sized home for a simple condo, a tiny RV and a recumbent tandem bike. When she’s not writing or traveling, you’ll find Bev curled up with a good novel or watching House Hunters International and dreaming of her next adventure.
