Who Wrote All This?

Originally every commentary you could access on this site was written by me, Karen Bernardo. As the site has evolved, though, I've begun to link to sites featuring outside content, such as those listed under Helpful Author Links and those sponsored by BookRags, a paid sponsor. (You'd have to click on a BookRags link to get to those.)

But how can you tell the difference? As a general rule of thumb -- if I wrote a literary commentary, the top of the page will say "Commentary by Karen Bernardo," or just "By Karen Bernardo." Everything on this home page was written by me as well. But if you're not absolutely sure about a source, email me and I'll help you. I'm happy to hear from you any time, and I promise to write back. It's important to me for you to have accurate information you can actually use.
