About Samual Ronthorpe

I was born in November, 1964. I am a Scorpio. I am a disabled veteran, U.S Army, 1st Inf. Div., "Big Red One".

Being a Scorpio; I am passionate, opinionated, hard-headed, quick tempered and I have anger issues.

"Samual Ronthorpe" is my pen name. My 'real' name has never been published on the Internet and it never will. I have been writing for over 30 years and I do have a few writings in print, under my 'real' name, which I choose not to reveal.

I write as a form of therapy. I really don't care if anyone reads my work or not, in fact, I only recently began to self publish. My writing is a way for me to keep my mind busy. I have discovered that if I think too long on serious issues, bad things happen. It is not uncommon for me to spend months writing a play or novel and then just destroying it, without anyone ever reading it. I have done that more times than I can remember. Like I said, I write for therapy and am still really not comfortable with people reading my work, but I am dealing with it.

When it comes to God and religion, I am an agnostic; however, I completely respect those who believe in such things. I don't desire to change your opinion, in this area, as long as you don't try to change mine.

I have done a lot of traveling. I have traveled to Canada, France, Germany, Ireland, Amsterdam, Spain, Portugal, S. Korea, Japan and a handful of other countries. I have taken 3 cruises. I took one to Alaska, one in the Virgin Islands/Bahamas and one to the Greek Islands. I plan to go to the U.K, sometime in 2013.

That's about it.

3 years is a long time to take a break. Recently, I had a life changing experience. Wow, The Soup has changed! It will take me a while to get back, like I was 3 years ago. Without naming last names, I want to acknowledge Carol, Diana and (especially), Tammy. You all know who you are.

I had time to write almost 20 new works, I deemed 'soup worthy'. I will post 1 per day.

With that, I am posting my 1st work in almost 3 years.

It is an Acrostic called "Carpe Diem". I hope you all enjoy it.

"Sam I Am"
