Endurance Trumps Talent
Every Day of the Week
'Mere literary talent is common; what is rare is endurance, the continuing desire to work hard at writing.'
I'm a Cleveland, Ohio-based writer, editor and writing coach, with more than 25 years of experience, including stints in Chicago and Washington, D.C. My work has appeared in more than 100 print and online publications, from the New York Times and the Christian Science Monitor to local and regional publications. My work has been recognized by awards (including an Emmy) from four journalism groups.
