    Also, I just released Massimo’s Mirror and Other Stories. Its my first collection of short stories. The book uses fantasy, science fiction, and fairy tales to create a world where a magical array of protagonists conquer their fears, battle forces of evil, and step up to meet their potential. Suitable for the secular and religious alike, these stories are full of symbolism and quirky characters, including aliens, robots, angels, demons, superheroes, gods, animals, giants, monsters and dragons. At just the right length to hold the attention of children and adults alike, all 50 stories are crafted to entertain and make us see behind the veil of reality, and perhaps teach something along the way.

    Food Addiction with Wendy Goeldner Hermes

    Food Addiction with Wendy Goeldner Hermes

    Today's conversation is with Wendy Goeldner Hermes. We discuss food addiction, the acting business (or the business of show, as Wendy puts it), as well as policies surrounding the pandemic for the past two years.

    Wendy Goeldner Hermes began her acting career in 1988, after spending 4 years at DePaul University's Goodman School of Drama. After 3 years of soul-crushing auditions, for unscrupulous casting directors decades before the #MeToo movement, Wendy realized she loved the craft of acting but hated the business. Upon leaving "the business of show," she started a theater company with 8 other friends and fellow Chicago actors and directors called "The Griffin Theater." Wendy performed, ran lights, punched sound boards, and hung drywall.

    After being transfixed about the inner workings of local politics, while trying to help run a theater space, Wendy shifted her focus to politics by using her public speaking savvy to navigate local, political campaigns from such various, local offices as school board, Illinois State Reps, U.S. Reps and super pacs. 

    During the 22 months of the Sars-CoV-2 pandemic, Wendy has been taking copious notes, recording data, watching task force meetings and "saving the receipts" on the changing tone of our politics. Look out for Wendy's new book For Those That Want It: My story on how Covid policies, protocols, promises & propaganda propelled me to join the Democrat Diaspora, coming to Amazon this winter!
