Road Warrior Tribute: Penny O’Neill

Penny O'Neill isn't a stranger here. You know her as Life on the Cutoff. Her comments are thoughtful delights. When several Chicago area groups tapped my publicist for appearances, I must confess something embarrassing: I didn't land enough gigs to justify the trip. Two committed groups fell through with no explanation. And from my expanded speaking experience, I knew what remained wouldn't cover my expenses, even if every soul in attendance bought both books. That never, ever happens.
