Short (true) story posted today on OCWW’s About Write

My short essay, “Taking the Self Out of Self-Publishing” appears today on the Off Campus Writers’ blog, and tells the story of how a chance encounter with a homeless kid led to not only a novel (Warming Up) and a story collection (Kind Eyes) but also a touching reconnection with a high school classmate who recognized her son in my story.  Here’s the link:

Off Campus Writers Workshop is Chicago’s oldest ongoing writing group, with weekly meetings from September through May featuring a roster of renowned speakers on all kinds of writing, including both craft and business advice.  The group (can be upwards of 75-100 people, depending on the speaker) meets in Winnetka and on Zoom; recordings are available after the presentation to those who sign up.  Membership is reasonable, and weekly meetings are usually $10.  Inspiration, fellowship and a wealth of helpful information.  See,
