Born and raised in Chicago, I've been writing poems since age 14. I recently published my first book of poetry entitled, "Hell Won't Hold Me and Heaven Can't Keep Me Out."
Hell Won't Hold Me and Heaven Can't Keep Me Out is a book of poems in which you'll witness the transformation of a boy to manhood as he experiences life's darker sides. Rhyme, free-verse and haiku-like styles abound in this lamenting of hopeless love, innocence lost, tales of insanity, dark humor, horror and fantastic storytelling. Transcend the world, with the author, through all of its beauty and nightmarish realities.
