D.K. Steffey is an emerging, struggling Chicagoland writer with an emphasis in struggling. After practicing in health care for more than a decade diagnosing irritable bowel syndrome, he has been writing a collection of short and quirky satirical stories that most often deal with important, current issues set in farcical situations. The story lines frame the issues within a presumably intriguing and entertaining context for awareness and discussion.
The stories are always short in length, designed to fill and enrich the rare free moments in today's busy working schedule--easily downloaded during a train ride, at a bus stop, or during the lunch hour. They benefit people in the modern world who often don't have time to dive into a full length novel, who often face repetitive distractions and obligations in the home, the workplace, and in between. Meanwhile, his offbeat humor is intended to lift readers from the gravity of their own troubles, even if just for a few moments.
