He explains that New York and LA get most of the demon book writing stories but Chicago is overlooked. He says, “things going on in Chicago make you wonder” what’s really happening.
“It took me two in a half years to write.” says Wesley. A lot phone calls and emails including 72 hours spent in a hotel room with his co-writer.
