John Micek is a writer who covers Pennsylvania state government for The (Allentown) Morning Call. (Here’s his blog.) He’s based in the Capitol building in Harrisburg. I’m the communications and policy director for the Majority Leader in the state Senate, so my job is also based in Harrisburg’s Capitol building.
Our paths cross quite regularly, and one thing we have in common is that we both love crime fiction. Today, I had the pleasure of reading a terrific short story written by Mr. Micek. Great descriptions, great dialogue, great characters. All in less than 1,000 words.
