At 50, I realized I had more things to say and less time to say it in.

Maybe you feel that same urgency. You have a story or a message that you want out in the world. If you do, we have something in common.

I began to write when I was 12. I’ve worked since I was 15. I wrote opinion for decades at four newspapers, so I’ve written commentaries on every subject you can imagine. But long before I became a journalist I worked as a dog walker, a nurse’s aide, as a factory worker and helped run a 108-bed homeless shelter.

Every job and role I’ve ever had shaped who I am as a writer and editor.

I pour those insights Into a weekly substack column, Casey's Catch, and I would be honored if you subscribed.  My memoir, due to be released next year, is a walk back into the uncertainty of the 1960s and the humor and madness of living in an alcoholic household. I hope you will read it, and if you feel so moved, review it.
