Injured in a motorcycle accident while in high school, that almost took my leg I began to write poetry to escape my physical confinement.

Background Information

Born in Jesup GA in 1957, the youngest of 6 children, we were poor but I didn’t know it. From the time I can remember I helped on the family farm picking tobacco. My childhood was spent fishing on the Satilla River and to this day I still use my father’s original wooden boat to fish the river.  I graduated from Brantley High School in1975. I wasn’t much for school, as I was too busy being popular with the girls, so I attended trade school and became a certified welder.  

Although welding paid the bills, writing remained my passion and I carried my original notebook around for years that contained my first compositions from high school.  Every once in a while I would get inspired and add to the collection but I rarely shared my poems with anyone.

In 2007, as my fiftieth birthday approached, I began contemplating my immortality and realized that I wanted to leave a legacy behind so people would remember I was here.  I had the first of two poems copyrighted Do You Hear? A vivid plea to politicians to be accountable for what is happening in society and shortly thereafter my second, Until His Last Breath a country inspired lyrical piece.

After entering and wining several writing contests, I had no idea that my poems would be so well received and I have a renewed sense of creativity to write more.  I am currently exploring all opportunities to expand my writing career.  I also have a childhood character that I would like to develop into a series of children’s books.

Birth Place

Additional Information

I am the proud father of daughter Candace, my son Colin and have 3 grandchildren. I am an amateur archeologist and enjoy digging for Indian artifacts, which I have quite a collection. An active member of the Georgia Poetry Society. The knick name “Doc” comes from the Bugs Bunny cartoon.
