I just never thought a memoir could be so gripping, that another life could draw me so helplessly in. I had read memoirs before but only about astronauts or politicians that changed the landscape of t...

When Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice released last weekend, I was shocked. I thought the film had been out for months. It had to have been after a year and a half of advertising. Batman v.

People often ask me why I write, why I spend hours digging through my imagination and finding the words to string a story together. I tell them that I have to and I’m not the only one. Within everyone is a story, an inner voice, and writing empowers people to listen to it. I know it sounds cliché...
