Well to begin with, Iris Fingerhut is actually my pen name. I am a US citizen and that’s about as specific as I can get. No, I’m not in the witness protection program or anything like that, but I’ve had some friends who had their online activities used against them in different facets of their lives.
I have a professional job and children who I would prefer did not know all the details of my personal life.
The other stuff? I am a mom and I was a wife for almost three decades. I didn’t expect to be starting over in my late 40s but here I am. Plot twist indeed! Writing and humor have gotten me through some of my darkest times and it is my wish it can help others as well.
