I love literature. I love reading, writing, and the creative process itself. I especially like writing about the idiosyncrasies that make individuals unique. In the process, everyday people become extraordinary individuals who have stories to tell. Writing fiction is a magical process where a writer sits down with a character and, over the course of time, a story unfolds and characters take on lives of their own. The writer is simply the medium, and I’m blessed to be used as an instrument to tell a story. My prized possession growing up on the West Side of Chicago was my library card.
