"When writers try to fly their works, Some of them fall down. But they must always flap their wings To get off of the ground."


Background Information

Most writers and artists are influenced by the life they live and the challenges they face in this unpredictable world we live in.   I was 15 when my parents separated.  I began writing Poetry and have never stopped. My sometimes fun and zany tales were a way of escaping a sad childhood. 

At twenty I began penning more stories than poetry.  My first published piece went to the Post Journal, a local newspaper in Jamestown, N.Y.  It was on the subject of recycling, and they snatched it up as our country at that time was just beginning the whole recycling craze.

My first paid piece went to the Good News Paper a few years back.  They bought it over the phone without any knowledge of it or its content. Then a magazine later picked up the same piece based on my newspaper success. 

I have sold numerous stories to magazines across the U.S. and now my work is International with my short stories in Portugal (floydthedog.com book club) and Cyprus (Creature Features-Book)  

My first E-book  short story: "Royal Ferdinand"  was published recently through Solstice Publication.  Seen HERE

I couple my writings with my artwork.  It is Digital Photography.  I now display art pieces at galleries and libraries.

Recently I have gotten involved in speaking and sharing at retirement homes, libraries, schools and club venues.

Birth Place
Mankius, NY U.S.A.
Accomplishments

I have many signed contracts for my stories, poems, and artwork.
I received an official certificate for a poem sent to the troops in Afghanistan called "Wooden Soldiers". I also sent along many stories for their entertainment.

Additional Information

I recently attended a paid storytelling venue at a N.Y. State Park. While teaching a Writing For Publications class, I received an e-mail from a magazine editor wanting one of my stories, but she also wanted a few changes. We completed the changes in the classroom, and students got to see a sale taking place right before their eyes. This was thrilling, and the dream of any writing teacher.
