When a fiesty band of mystery writers decided to create a blog together, our first challenge was coming up with something that hasn't been done by a zillion other bloggers.
We think we've done it.
Working Stiffs is about our day jobs. Sure, we write mysteries, but we also have other work to do, and some of us have really interesting jobs. In the weeks to come, we'll be writing about the psychology of murder, the mysteries of the legal mind, and some careers we think you'll find even more intriguing. We have a massage therapist in our midst, a creative mind from the world of advertising, and a handbag designer. Not to mention some technical writers, a connection to the police department, a yoga instructor and a psycho-therapist to make sure we all get along. Some of us are full-time writers, too. And---oh, yeah, we have our very own lifestyle guru to make things even more interesting.
You won't be bored.
We're located in Pittsburgh, which means we've got an attitude you won't find in other cities. Here in The Burgh, we like pierogies and hard work and football. (Have I mentioned the Super Bowl yet?) And we like the occasional juicy murder, too.
Check back. You'll see what I mean.
