A few years ago I cracked open a fortune cookie and pulled out the small slip of paper. One side taught me to say cherry in Chinese (Ying Tao), while the other side had these words of wisdom:

Good writing is clear thinking made visible.

What it didn’t tell me was how hard it is to get your thinking clear enough to put down on paper, and combine your love for words with the other loves in your life. In my case, this means merging mystery, food, technology, and dogs. Not as easy as it sounds, but I’ve enjoyed every step of the journey so far. It’s been a long, sometimes painful learning process, but I’ve met so many talented, generous people along the way.

My journey continues, so if you share any or all of my passions, this is the place to be!
