InventorSpot.com is pleased to annouce the arrival of M Dee Dubroff to the Inventor Spot team.

M Dee Dubroff is a freelance writer who currently resides in Doylestown, PA, but is originally and very secretly from Brooklyn, New York. She will be writing about what's new, wild and wacky in the world of food and drink innovations, trends and gadgets.

A not-so-recent graduate of New York University, she used to be a history teacher, but the pull of the pen and love for the written word lured her into the cosmos of freelance writing for fun and hopefully, at least sometimes, profit.

We hope you enjoy her blog .
