What do your fans mean to you?
Well, currently the only fans I have so far are my friends and family, so I'm looking forward to a future time when I can answer that question again. Seriously, when anyone shows an interest in my writing, it is an incredible honor and a thrill.
What are you working on next?
I'm currently writing about the life story of a close friend, whose journey has been remarkable. The title is Pretty Kenny, and he has led a turbulent life, including homelessness on the streets of Chicago and a 16-year prison sentence. He has turned his life around, and spends his time studying to attain his GED, and carpooling his grand-daughters in Beloit, Wisconsin. It's a true story about a life-changing chance encounter with a Chicago artist, and love and trust and redemption.
