Elizabeth Daugherty

I am a homemaker-writer transplanted to Indiana from Seattle by way of my software engineer husband. Being married to someone in the software industry is like being married to someone in the military. You go where the job sends you. I am immersed in the techie world where I am learning to speak what I call "Geekinese" in order to survive being "a Timex watch in a digital age".

I would never admit that to my husband.
