THIS WRITER’S LIFE: Inspiration or Prison?

Reading is essential for a writer.

Who wouldn’t want to write like Dickens or Hemingway or Tolstoy?

A writer must kill their literary icons to free their own voice. 

Kerry Cue is a humorist, journalist, mathematician, and author. Her latest book is a crime novel, Target 91, Penmore Press, Tucson, AZ (2019).
