I write fiction.
That wasn’t always the case.
I’ve rung cash registers, held a real estate license and hooked up overhead cranes. For my mortgage-paying job I cozied up to mainframes. Trouble-shooting was the term. I’ve worked in steel mills and data centers, and for a company which famously makes ketchup.
No matter where I travel, my accent gives me away.
Though I might stray far away at times, Pittsburgh will always be my home.
