Spring 2013

This is just a quick update. I’m behind on my site newsletter, so if you’ve signed up, please bear with me. I am busy writing, editing, tending to business concerns and working on stories in progress. Everything takes longer than anticipated and, while some stories fall through, others make progress, some faster than others. This is in addition to my professional reporting, blogging and consulting or managing social media for business.

Chicagoland’s North Shore Weekend, for whom I am a contributing writer, recently ran my series of Sheridan Road-themed political articles, including an exclusive interview with activist Kathryn Cameron Porter, and I’ve been assigned to write about some of suburban Chicago’s worst crimes including the unsolved 1966 murder of Valerie Percy in Kenilworth and Laurie Dann’s murderous rampage in 1988 (so let me know if you know – or remember – anything about those or other north suburban Chicago crimes) and I may also develop certain Chicago-area stories as well. Occasionally, I write an op-ed and I’m happy to say that my argument against ObamaCarewhich originated as an assignment for a course I was taking, was published in the Washington Times on the eve of the dictate’s third birthday.

Speaking of dates, this week marks the first anniversary of my redeveloped Web site, which exists to showcase my writing. As always, thank you for reading.
