I am user researcher with Microsoft, but enjoy writing short stories and novels in what little spare time I have. Most of my work falls into the black humor category, so be warned! As always, I accept all criticism, additions, or angry mobs (that's happened one too many times), as each failure is a step on the way to becoming a better writer.
