About Me

I am a literary adviser, guide, mentor and conduit for creativity.  My goal is to inspire and encourage you to embrace and release your inner artist.  I assist in bringing your vision to fruition by breathing life into literary ideas and aspirations.  You have a voice. You have a story.  You have a dream.  Together, we will discover the poem or narrative that speaks and emulates your passion.  Expression is a spiritual experience that enriches and elevates all. 

My compositions reflect a diversity of genres, subjective interpretations and meditative reflections concerning themes of prejudice, racism, socioeconomic inequality, homophobia, discriminatory legacies, suspense, noir, horror and spiritualism.  To improve your project or literary journey, I graciously share the benefits, observations, lessons and realities from 35 years of experience as an award-winning poet.
