For those of you who have read my pieces in Folio Weekly, The Florida Times Union, Jacksonville Magazine, Florida Politics Online, or any other publication syndicating my work, I’ve missed you.
More than ten years ago, Folio Weekly’s then-editor Anne Schindler gave me my first shot at professional free-lance journalism. A significant portion of my work was dedicated to advocacy on behalf of our leaky, crumbling, financially starved public schools. Over the decade, under five more editors, and in the company of formidable, unsurpassably talented writers, I answered the call to write about much, much more.
It is in homage to the spirit of Folio Weekly that I dare to muddle through these WordPress templates. If you love our city, as I do, even when she breaks your everlovin’ heart, I am here to remind you you’re not alone. If you love your country, even as you fantasize about renewing your passport and sewing jewelry into the hems of your garments, I feel you. If you want rational, well-considered reflections on matters of importance and mutual concern, I hope you’ll find it here.
I’ll also let you know when I publish my first novel, Seen.
