continued from the front page having worked for the past 10 years at the Evanston RoundTable, where I am presently on staff.

I retired from the corporate world in 2010, and am back where I started, community journalism, doing the most challenging and rewarding job I can imagine: writing to edify, electrify and entertain. As novelist Russell Banks tells writers, “You are never better than when you are writing.” Writing at its best requires writers to be as good as they can be.

Stories from every phase of my career are available here. I hope you enjoy them. Please pull up a figurative chair, make yourself comfortable and stay awhile.
