Searching for Harmony
All of my stories and essays are crafted to have some sort of singleness of effect, producing a change, a reaction in my audience. The stories hopefully work on other levels as well, confronting my audience with questions and connections that linger on. If my stories don’t affect my reader I feel like I’ve somehow failed as a writer. All of the best stories I’ve read have left me changed somehow, and hopefully my work has the same effect on others.
