Biographical and Professional Information

Szillagyi has been a sheet metal worker for appx. 30 years and a writer for as long as she can remember. The heroine of her book ''Hey, Lady! Your Tin Snips are Showing!'' is a woman who joins a formerly all-male sheet metal shop as an apprentice. It's a tale about growing up female, challenging the norms, and following one's dreams, down an unusual and oftentimes hilarious road that few have traveled before.
