I have no sense of direction. I'm an indifferent cook. Basic math eludes me. I never figured out how to properly wear makeup.
And I am, hands down, the worst maker of TikTok videos, ever. If you don't believe me, check it out.
All by way of saying, the only notable skill I seem to possess is an ability to write. Yet despite making my living as a writer for decades (journalism, speechwriting, Congressional testimony, etc.), I hesitated to label myself a "writer" until quite recently. I guess after writing several plays, five novels, and scores of essays and poems, I had to acknowledge the pattern.
So, yeah, I write--about endangered mermaids, mystery-solving journalists, teen tragedy, backyard refugees. My stories grapple with the collision between politics and culture and focus on underdogs pursuing righteous justice.
Courteous reviews, comments, and questions are always welcome. Let the conversations begin.
