The Purpose for What I Write

Tossed between writing letters to Congressmen and our local newspapers in this vicious, turbulent era we are bumping through, I always come back to my fiction. My hope is that through my stories and characters, I will allow readers to experience life in a way that will expand them and make them better people. If I can help them connect with a character and the emotions or struggles he or she goes through, maybe I can subtly urge them to see the people in their daily lives differently. It has been said that one of the best ways to teach empathy is through stories. My hope is that my stories achieve this, and in some small way, I help the world be a better place.
