who we think with.
I spent the better part of my twenties working in pubs, serving, bartending, managing, and doing whatever else I could to put off getting the inevitable, but dreaded, “grown-up” job. Taking the old write-what-you-know advice seriously, I wrote an editorial about booze. Got paid (to write?!). And got sucked in.
I’ve always been a word-geek (think word scrambles, crosswords, demanding my parents quiz me on spelling, correcting typos on the kids’ menu kind of geek) and a voracious reader. I will literally (pun not intended, but it stays) read anything put in front of me, from Popular Mechanics to Proust.
I spend my days in the endless, but oddly fun, writing-editing-rewriting cycle and my nights and weekends camping, cooking, practicing Pilates, drinking Guinness and playing arcade-style shooting games—these days it’s mostly Buck Hunter, but my heart will always belong to House of the Dead.
