Rod Bartchy:

Rod Bartchy followed the family tradition and accumulated two engineering degrees by his mid twenties before coming to his senses. After 20 years in hazardous waste disposal, Rod tried to manage other people’s money but found it equally toxic. He then survived 5 years with the IRS, but recovered most of his sanity in a Tibetan ashram.
Rod has written two novels, Enigma and Dol Guldor, and one novella, Key West Story.  All have been withheld from publication, two to spare the reader any permanent trauma, and Dol Guldor, after the nice lawyers from the Tolkien estate came for a little chat.
Rod is now ready to reveal the shocking inside stories of America’s largest collection agency, at least until he’s audited.  Rod’s essays have been published in the Chestnut Hill Local and True Humor
Rod lives in Chestnut Hill, Philadelphia with his daughter, her boyfriend, two turtles and cat. When not writing humor, he tutors kindergarten, suffers from inept golfer syndrome, and plays way too much Scrabble.
