*Image is of Mauna Kea (meaning White Mountain) 13,760 ft, on the island of Hawaii where 202,000 islanders reside. The foreground, on the windward side, is the county seat of our island and its largest town of Hilo (meaning to bond), with 48,000 residents, whereto, is my birthplace and where I now call home--once more.

Aloha!

Rural life on the island of Hawaii, I held an interest in poetry since my freshman year in high school. 'The Collection Plate', was my first published work in 1977 by a major national magazine. That opened the door for others to appear in several published anthologies throughout my early career.

My family all grew up on the mainland. Kenny, Ricky, the twins Liz and Franky (who had passed 01/14/2022 at 35 years old), Princess, Rose, and Kimo, twelve grandkids, and three great-grandsons. I met my wife of 25 years, Elyse, of Spanish and Swedish descent from Seville, Spain, on my 17th birthday. We both attended the University, she was four years my senior. Sadly, she died shortly after Kimo was born.

I retired after 48 years and successfully sold online for a few years while passively engaging a writer's aspirations.
