I Have Something to Tell You: I Wrote A Novel.

Strapp held his wife’s hand as he drove, stealing glances at the photograph she held. This was the only picture they had of their son, a photo they received from their social worker. The boy looked to be about six years old, and he had dark skin, darker eyes, and black hair. Strapp and Julie […]

Scribbling in the Dark

"Mom, is that what you're wearing?" They are teenagers now - one teen and one almost-teen - and they take great interest or offense in what I am wearing. "This is what I am wearing," I say, side glancing his way as I drop a package of peanut m&m's in my brown bag. "But it's […]

I Have This Theory.

I have this theory.  It's tested but unproven, and I'll never know if it's true as long as I'm on this side of heaven.  But in all the ways that theories come to be, I believe I hold a solid contention. My theory is this. When you lose someone you love, when they get to […]

Chicago Hot Dogs and Audio Books

I am both horrified and mortified to tell you this, but it is true. I gained ten pounds in Chicago last week. One week.  Ten pounds.  This is not an exaggeration, and it is not even an estimation. It is exact and precise and appalling. Ten pounds. You see, I was in Chicago. And Chicago […]
