Growing up nowadays can be difficult, especially given the reality of gun violence in our schools. I haven't read a novel since Wally Lamb's The Hour I First Believed that deals with this important topic so poignantly.

For all of us who believe there is not one way. One genre. One spirit. One answer. Or even one question. This blog is for the writer before she was so, as well as for the reader who defies her expectations every time: it is for the poets, satirists, fiction writers, essayists, diarists, and ancient word wanderers; this blog is for the infinitely unwritten. To each, a celebration. A celebration to all.
