Welcome Danny Gardner!

I apologize that there was a mix-up and we had dead air yesterday.

I bite off more than I can chew a lot, and with Holly West stepping down, I thought a post a week would be easy. Not when you're working full-time and writing a novel, it ain't. So I reached out to a couple of writers who have a lot to say, who could use this spot to get it heard.

Danny Gardner, author of A Negro and an Ofay, was the first to come to mind. Danny's posts on social media and articles are always worth reading, and both funny and important.

Next week, I hand the mic to the author of a great debut, and a rising star in the genre. We'll be sharing duties on Wednesdays from now on.

If you don't know Danny, this is his debut-- a powerful novel set in the '50s in the Chicago area, showing a side that gets short shrift in the mobster narratives about the city and its environs.
