Nicely done. Related: not long ago, I was looking for a Palo Alto-based writer to help me with a project for a client. I Googled "Palo Alto writer" and goddammit if Franco wasn't the top search result, photo and all. It made me want to stab something.

Good god. I think it's safe to say most of us have dealt with creepy coworkers and customers in the past, but this is just beyond. I'm so sorry you've had to deal with this, and worse, that you were made to feel you'd caused it.
As a fellow freelance writer, I'm hereby keeping an eye out for projects for you. I just started following you on twitter; please message me if you want some tips on how to pay the rent with your writing instead of having to deal with harassers and the cowards who enable them.
