About Fisheye Books

My name is Trish Thorpe and my nickname is Fisheye. I was born and 'raised' in Los Angeles, California, graduated from U.C. Berkeley with a degree in English, moved permanently to the San Francisco Bay Area, and worked in Silicon Valley IT communications. About my nickname... a fisheye lens is like the one you see through front-door peepholes. They’re magnified in the middle and distorted around the edges. They’re also very wide-angle so you can see everything. It’s the wide-angle and close-up features of fisheye lenses that define my nickname. Keeping one eye on the big picture while focusing on what’s right in front of me has been a lifelong habit of mine.
