what attracted you to the position? June 6, 2013

EEEEEKKKKK……the worst question. The obvious answer is: “I want a job”. But in the world of job interviews that isn’t good enough. Job interviews are a kind of cruel and unusual punishment aren’t they. I say that as someone who had to sit on the other side of the table this morning as part of […]

the narrator is Death….puh-lease April 26, 2013

When the lovely and welcoming @jobeaz kindly let me become part of her book club I was full of good intentions. Here was my chance to get back into reading fiction.
