I spent twice a week volunteering with Chicago’s homeless, youth in particular, and got to know a few on a personal level that made me want to become a voice for them. My Street Stories Suspense series is my attempt to do just that.
I continued to volunteer when I moved to the Pacific Northwest, channeling the lessons I learned on the streets of Chicago. Seattle is surrounded by mountains and ocean and emerald green trees. Solitude and peace can be found a short drive from home. But until the human element can find a way to treat themselves and each other with respect and understanding, there is darkness out there as well. And it’s how you deal with the darkness that counts.
My STREET STORIES series reflects the reality of throw away youth striving to survive. My publication credits include short fiction in Red Herring Mystery Magazine, Downstate Story and City Slab.
