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, six novels, and scores of essays and poems, I had to acknowledge the pattern.
So, yeah, I write--about pregnant men, endangered mermaids, mystery-solving journalists, teen tragedy, backyard refugees. My stories grapple with the collision between politics and culture and focus on underdogs pursuing justice and a happy ending.
Courteous reviews, comments, and questions are always welcome. Let the conversations begin.
