About the Authors

  • danahey
    Mike Danahey is a reporter for the Sun-Times Media Group. He lives in the northwest suburbs of Chicago, where he unofficially has been adopted as their eldest son by the Clarkes, who came to America from Dublin. His own family left him for the West Coast and better weather. Danahey is a Phi Beta Kappa graduate of the University of Denver, but that was a long time ago, and they threatened to take his key away if he didn't finally publish.
