a PI, an Introvert, and a Porn Star Walk Into a Bar

This is a True Story

(Except that Bit About Reuters)

A few years ago, a woman and her husband decided to get their private investigation licenses. They took the class, tested, then hung their certs. in their office.

Around the same time, a best selling technology author needed some photography work for one of his books. His introvert wife agreed to take the necessary photos, as long as he agreed to attribute her work under a pseudonym.

Many years before this, there was a porn star by the name of Rebecca Steele.

Can You Guess the Author’s Wife’s Pseudonym?

The P.I. husband and the author are the same man. The P.I. wife and photographer are the same woman.

They didn’t Google the name Rebecca Steele before choosing it. They just thought it sounded really cool. They decided he would attribute her photography, using the same name.

That wife eventually did Google Rebecca Steele, and discovered that she was a porn star, but too late.
