He probably doesn’t remember it, but David Dark played a minor role in my journalistic coming-of-age. One of the first assigned articles I ever wrote was for a (now defunct) online magazine called Communique Journal. It was back in 1997 […]

Do I owe my writing career to Cara Davis? She’d probably say “no,” but I’m not so sure. She was the first person I got to know at Relevant Magazine, the first editor to ask me if I had any […]
