I was born and lived in Williamson Iowa.I found poetry at the young age of 8 or 9. It helped me deal with most of lifes many turns and curves! I never had family or so I had thought. I moved to Ottumwa Iowa in 1982. From there I moved to Dallas Texas,then to Burlington Iowa, then to Santa Maria California before moving back to Iowa. I never wanted to be old and grey talking about all the things I wish I had done,I just did them. From 1982 until today I have used my poetry to help me make sense of things. Mainly because no one was listening to me. I had a hard life but I'm not complaining, because it helped me find my passion for poetry.
