Let me grab a pen.

Hey, I'm Zoë.

I tackle history, culture, and the occasional content marketing project.

Whether I'm writing 8,000 words on the hunt for a long-lost Nazi, a hot take about The Bachelorette, or a book about content marketing, I write to teach readers new things and have fun doing it.
