Illinois Connection

I was born, educated and amused in Chicago, Illinois where I returned the favor by writing humorous stories. I am a graduate of Loyola University of Chicago.

Biographical and Professional Information

I am a fan of humor so it's fortunate that I live in Chicago and had early access to Second City. As an undergrad my first creative writing class was taught by John Powers, author of "Do Black Patent Leather Shoes Really Reflect Up." I continued my writing education with classes at Columbia College, a B.A. degree in Communications/Journalism from Loyola and comedy writing at Second City.

While earning a living as a marketing professional I published articles and short stories in local newspapers. One story made it to the Wall Street Journal's Career Journal. That article is now part of the collection titled "My Humor's Working (Even if I'm Not)." Please click on the Amazon link where you can read the entire first chapter. If it makes you giggle, I hope you buy a copy for yourself and encourage your friends to do the same.
