Born in New Jersey, I now live in Florida. I was a journalist for many years and joined Poetry Soup to share poems and make new friends.
My poetry is very direct and to the point, even if I am sometimes a bit long winded. I am struggling now to master the shorter verse forms. Most of my poems tell stories, all are inspired by deep feelings on a very wide range of topics.
I have written four novels, so writing a narrative verse is a nice change for me. I love hearing from other writers and always try to respond when someone makes a comment. I enjoy reading others' works as much as I enjoy writing my own.
Fishing, furry creatures and football are among my greatest loves. I have no tolerance for bigotry and hatred. "Judge not lest ye be judged" is my favorite quote.
I have few fears, but sharks and alligators are among them. I also fear for the future of our world.
