Ghostwriter, linguistic alchemist, podcast consultant, WordPress fangirl, and cat lover, finally married to +Stefan Didak
I was born in Chicago--you can still hear it in my voice sometimes. But we moved to Cleveland's East Side when I was seven, so that's really where I think of myself as growing up. On a dirt road. With horses. And a pond.
I attended Laurel School for Girls in high school and still wear my class ring and go back for the occasional reunion. (Stefan says the school looks like Hogwarts, but this is an exaggeration.)
After that I went off to college and haven't lived in the Cleveland area since.
I was trained as a classicist and spent four years teaching Greek and Roman drama at the University of Warwick in England. But I was also a geek from an early age, and first got online in 1985. (BITNET. Mainframes. Dumb terminals with green letters on black screens.)
Somehow all of that led me to become a consultant with multiple business personality disorder, living on the West Coast with two cats and an Extreme Software Developer.
All my life I've contested with a name that people can neither spell nor pronounce--and then I met Google. There is only one of me in Google. It's wonderful. I am vindicated in my name. So if you remember me blonde, or a bit chubbier, or just a heck of a lot younger--not to worry. You have the right Sallie Goetsch.
