God envies the poets. After 16 books, five CDs and more than 20,000 poems in my catalog, I am still grinding at top speed. And now I have a literary magazine I have created and am an editor and publisher!


Passion.  Honest passion.  That which I know within me, that which I perceive in others.

Amid a constant hunt for truth.  And, after too long away, I am back.
