Medium has been a great place to consolidate and expand my portfolio, but now it’s time for me to go solo. To that end I’ve created my own website called, you guessed it, Pauline Montagna, Author.

I’ll be transitioning material from Medium to my website week by week, as well as adding new material as I go.
