I really was born in Chicago and, yes, a sock salesman really did try to buy me from my parents. After a brief sojourn in Florida, not far from Pensacola, where my dad was born, I grew up in El Paso, Texas. I've traveled a bit, but not as much as I'd like to. I currently live in Tucson, Arizona.
A tutor at Pima Community College West Campus Learning Center, I tutor students of ESL, reading, writing, and pre-algebra. Having taught study skills and career development classes at the college level, I often work with students on goal setting and time management. I specialize in helping students with complex writing assignments in a variety of disciplines.
With over a decade of experience as a technical writer and editor in the IT industry, I've led training classes for other technical writers.
I also write fiction; my author website is A Writer's Space: Pamela's Place and I have almost matching blogs at Dreamwidth and LiveJournal, where I discuss writing, politics, life, food, and any other topic that interests me at the moment.
Where else can you find me?
