Is this a true story?
A shocking number of the people, places and events in the story are real, but no, it's fiction. I've adapted some outrageous true events from the era for new purposes, though. Only because a straight retelling would seem way too over-the-top to be believed.
Who are you?
and I am a Daytime Emmy-nominated screenwriter and novelist. I created the TV series RollBots

I found a mistake!

and let me know. Thank you!
Why did you change format?
I previously released a chapter of Bytown every Monday, Wedesday and Friday, which shook out to one episode a month. Two things have changed since I started: coronavirus made that schedule hard to maintain (strangely, I have less time than before...) and
secondly, a not-insignificant number of readers asked for ebook versions. This new strategy allows me more time to get things exactly right, and lets you read on the device of your choosing.
What does Maggie look like?
Fun fact: I have this thing called aphantasia, which means I don't have a visual imagination. Which is to say: I have no idea what my characters look like, except for whatever details I analytically choose to describe. So Maggie looks exactly the way you
picture her, and don't let anyone tell you otherwise. Incidentally, if you are artistically-inclined, I am consistently dazzled by fan art. Post to social media and tag me and I will lavish you with praise.
