Today I'll be featured on Yinzpiration, a blog created by Kate Showalter with the mission of interviewing 100 inspiring Pittsburhgers. I'm honored to be #9. Meeting Kate for coffee/ hot chocolate was a delight!
(For my non-Pittsburgh readers - "Yinz" is the equivalent of "y'all" in Pittsburghese, and Kate has cleverly blended this word with "inspiration" for her blog.)
