Asking a writer "What do you write about?" can lead to a lengthy conversation you didn't anticipate. The short version is that I draw inspiration from talented people who are driven to make a difference in the world. Those who have passion for their craft; who are devoted to achieving their dreams, and are willing to share their knowledge; and, those individuals whose lives are devoted to improving others' lives — intrigue me. I'm compelled to tell their stories.
