Kathleen A McLaughlin, a writer/illustrator, has enjoyed many years working in the fields of journalism, technical writing, educational articles for international magazines, publishing and public speaking. As an illustrator, cartoonist and a fine artist, she has illustrated books and periodicals including instructional manuals, cookbooks and nonfiction publications. Kathleen, a native San Diegan, has had an interest in art and writing since childhood. She has been scribbling and doodling her way through life ever since.
The 1970’s was a daunting time for women working in non-traditional jobs. Kathleen McLaughlin obtained a position with a local utility as the first woman mechanic’s helper. The reaction of the men on the job was unexpected. This book is a humorous collection of snippets of her non-traditional life: personal time, work time and her promotion into the curious world of corporate administration.
