What was your first job as a journalist?
Paid: Education reporter, North Kitsap Herald, Poulsbo, Wash. Unpaid: The Farley Times, which I wrote as a boy. Subscribers: My parents.
Have you ever used a typewriter?
In school. I miss how palpable it felt to hit the keys and feel the ink punch the paper.
Who's your favorite fictional journalist?
Clark Kent. Sorry, but it's hard to beat a journalist by day, super hero by night.
