A chameleon, able to shift between accepted society and bohemian back street life, I relish in the extremes of life.

Background Information

Poetry about the ups and downs of life in everyday living pad most of my portfolio at  Short stories and editorial articles, as well as essays about being a Baby Boomer are also my forte.

My poems have been published in the anthologies: The Best Poems and Poets of 2004Theatre of the Mind, and Invoking the Muse.  I plan to self-publish my first anthology called "Colouring Outside the Lines," by October of 2005.

I taught English and English as a Second Language in Texas for 13 years. Since then, my post graduate studies have included mental health issues (especially bipolar disorder), philosophy, psychology, sociology, and comparative/contrastive world religions and cultures.  I love the outdoors,  going to the lake or beach, and playing with my two cats and two big dogs.

I tutor high school students on a one-to-one basis. My interest in multi and retro-culture, politics, and environmental issues provides a background for my editorials and non-fiction works.

I'm also currently working on three novels: A Cultural Crevice, Butch, and Ghetto Ghandi and His Suicidal Sidekick: The Urban Legend of a Teenage Boy.

My goal as a writer is to provoke question, and evoke thought and emotion.  Critiques and market leads are much appreciated.
