My day job dictates what I write and how I write it. This blog is where I do things my way. That usually involves some combination of short stories, poetry, family history write-ups, and a few personal essays.
I am a writer and editor in Chicago. My name might appear somewhere in your kids’ history and English textbooks because that’s what I do for a living. When I’m not writing, I’m watching superhero TV shows with my partner or playing laser with my cat.
This blog has been featured twice on WordPress Discover and some of its content has won BlogHer’s Voices of the Year as well as several other writing competitions. My work has also appeared on websites, including The Drabble and Elan Morgan’s 5 Star, and in print publications, including Wizards In Space Literary Journal.
