I used to play Words with Friends on Facebook. But then I realized that arriving on Facebook meant I “had a job to do” and hated it. So, I quit.

I love words. I wrote a novel and started a second. Writing hasn’t felt much like work… okay, a little.




We’re a Bad Influence because we INCITE change through inclusion, thought and creativity. We imagine a world where people can think critically, express themselves, and thumb their nose at the status quo, together.
