Second story for the Kansas City Star is up on their website!

This one was such a pleasure to do—I got to meet Danny O’Neill, legendary Bean Baron behind The Roasterie coffee that gets me up in the morning as well as the effervescent Deb Wiebrecht, executive director of Variety Children’s Charity.

This is why I think I will always want to write for newspapers, even just freelancing. There is no better way to become an active part of your community than writing about it. Thank you Kansas City Star, Danny O’Neill, Deb Wiebrecht and Kimberly Stern for helping me do what I love… write.

You can read the story on the Kansas City Star’s site here.
