I write to consider how we all might best shuffle through the world's waltz without stepping on each others' toes. Of course, I must also entertain or all is for naught. Poking at the systems that create injustices, my stories hopefully connect with emerging generations or, also hopefully, anyone who believes they can still make a difference.
