Laura SinpetruSoftpedia editor profile and article archive

Hey, there! From where I stand, it seems that my life-long passion for animals and nature, together with my avid interest in everything that has to do with the written word, finally paid off, as now I get to spend my time reporting on how important the natural world is and on how we all should focus on taking better care of it.

OK, maybe when I was one-year-old I didn't really know how to make heads or tails of what was around me, but once I began to grow up, I sparked a sudden interest in most of the things having to do with the environment.

Otherwise, I'm your average chirpy young lady, who enjoys spending time with friends – outdoors, if possible – and browsing for new editions of relatively old books in libraries.

Hopefully, you'll have as much fun reading my articles as I have writing them!
