  • Russell Fine

    Russell Fine

    I held a lot of different positions during my working career. Each was, to some extent, built on the experiences I had in my previous position. Most of the jobs I had were technical. My first job was repairing radios. During college I worked as a machinist. After college I worked as a lab technician, a mechanical designer, and electrical engineer. After my initial exposure to computers I became a programmer. That led to a job in technical support and I ultimately was promoted to Director of Technical Support.

  • Reality: Sometimes Fiction Immitates Life
    Written by Wayne Zurl Created on Friday, 30 September 2016 13:42

My stories are based on real police cases I investigated, supervised, or just knew a lot about. Then I fictionalize and embellish them, and transplant them from New York...
