Author of Loving Frank Talks to Trib

Oak Park native Nancy Horan was recently profiled in the Tribune, and there are some wise words for all beginning writers:

"What set Horan's life going in an entirely new direction was the moment she sat down with a yellow legal pad and a pen and began to tell a story. What truly mattered was the moment she decided that—long odds be damned—she would write about what intrigued her, in the way she wanted to, and try to get it published."
