Hi! Today’s question is from Laura. An easy one to answer, Laura, thank you!
From Laura: What other jobs have you had? Do they help with your writing?
I have always loved to write but my occupations that paid the rent included secretary and histologist (tissue and slides for pathologists). My primary occupation was working for an engineering and construction firm that built designed and built gas plants. I wrote welding procedures and specifications and was in quality assurance. I worked for years as a welding inspector. AWS and ASME certified (which will mean nothing except to those who either grew up and/or worked in the oil field!) I haven’t used any part of this in A Separate Heaven so far, but maybe in another novel to come.
Thank you, Laura, for your question.
