When I was a sophmore in high school, I met a girl named Amy. Amy was a friend of a friend and we soon struck up a friendship and a romance. Amy was a writer and she sooned turned me on to the idea. I began what I thought was a journal, but what ended up being a small collection of poetry. I called it 1993: The Year of Change. I made a few copies of it and distributed it among family and friends. A year or so later, I put together another book called The Silent Scream From Within. Most of those poems were dark and foreboding, reflecting the heavy issues that I was dealing with at the time. Since that time, my love affair with writing has continued and it is one of the reasons that I have this blog and write in it.

I am thinking again of putting together another book of poetry, short stories and essays. I have written a number of things over the years and I would like to share some of them with other people. Writing for me has always been a release, a way that I figure out things. I do not write because I necessarily enjoy it, I write because I have to. It builds up in me and explodes through channels that are called words and I just do my best to paint a picture of my thoughts and feelings. I do hope that you enjoy my work. I’m always looking for critiques and I will keep you posted regarding the book.
