Building A New Levee One Word at a Time


Background Information

I started writing in a little gated community in Central Louisiana called Hunt Correctional Center. I ran across the book of a friend called, "Pecan Candy and Huck-a-Bucks" while hiding in the prison library from a convict I borrowed food from. I read the first few pages and decided to take it back to the Dormitory and read it. I loved it, so I decided to write. I failed terribly in the beginning, because I didn't know much about English mechanics. But a fight that landed me in lockdown for two years and two years of books on English, Grammar, Creative Writing and Literature solved all of my problems. I started on my first novel, then the second, then a collection of poems, then my memoirs. Fallen Levee is my first published piece, but it the grandchild of two generations of stories. I love to write. I love to read. I can care less about the industry. I strive to be an engineer of the written word.

Accomplishments

My greatest achievement was the four page letter to the Office of Probation and Parole in Louisiana that granted me favor with the Board and spared me another prison bid when I evacuated for Hurricane Katrina and left the State of Louisiana without permission.
My second greatest achievement was the poem, "The Mistress". That poem solidified my position as a street poet in the coffee shops of the Big Easy.
My third greatest achievement was the publication of the story Fallen Levee, dedicated to the victims of Katrina and also dedicated to exposing the failures we experienced from our local, state and federal government.
