Like you, I’m someone who has racked up some rough miles. My shell and my soul don’t quite jive. Arise Ink is my voice, and I hope it will help you find yours. It’s about giving readers new ways to think about old ideas, like all the ways we’re different from each other, all the ways we’re the same and the value of empathy. Most of all, I try to polish up the pain and suffering of oppressed and marginalized people until it’s so reflective we can all see ourselves in it.
