Sidelights

Katie Burke told SATA: "I am a writer who doesn't take enough time to write. So, perhaps I'm not truly a writer. I'm very good at beginnings, but I have a hard time seeing a book through to the end—a common problem amongst us non-writer writers. But I believe in the power of storytelling, and how stories can mold our lives, change our perceptions, enrich us. There are countless stories to be told and written; I remain optimistic that I'll get some more of them out of my head and onto paper."
