Welcome to a Website for All Things History!

This website, formally known as Chocolate & Paper, will henceforth be known as The Pittsburgh Writer! Here we’ll fully dive into the areas of study that makes this writer’s heart very happy. No more pretending to be a novelist when I now know that’s not my real goal in life.
