Let me introduce you to Trilby Trench, action hero and technical writer.

In her own words:

I’m Trilby Trench.
As in the hat, the coat.

The role of a technical writer is more exciting than you’d think. Sometimes things get physical. Trilby has always been lucky in a fight. Or perhaps it’s skill rather than luck. As every technical writer knows, you need to do something yourself before you can write the manual. Trilby has written a variety of manuals.

The first account of the Trilby Trench adventures is out! Try A Word If You Please.
