As far as my life experiences go, well I’m a former drug addict, criminal, sex addicted, liberal FUCK! I’m a 34-year-old conservative Christian who loves his wife and 2 sons, Jesus Christ, and most importantly myself. In the words of Michael Madsen, “ I’ve been sewn up, blown up, x-rayed, drugged up, tied up, locked up, fucked up, burned, stabbed, left, hit--and hit back”. Only God and my wife have saved me.
Say what you want about Christian conservatives, but I spent most of my late teens and twenties, either on the streets or locked up in one institution or another. My poetry is a reflection of my inner most core. I write not because I want to, but because I must. As far as my style goes…..well you be the judge of that. I have one true belief when it comes to writing fiction…..I believe writers shouldn’t take themselves or their writing too seriously. Say what you need to say as simply as you can. Then get out of the way………
I write poetry, short stories, screenplays, and I’m writing my first novel. I started writing around 15. My influences range from……Charles Bukowski to Jack Kerouac, Raymond Carver to Earnest Hemingway to William S. Burroughs and Jerry Stahl, Michael Madsen to Mickey Rourke and Jim Morrison to my Wife.
