I am a product of the 1950s and 60s; born and raised on the Virginia coast, with the exception of a few jaunts to Europe and Asia in the 1970s. I have been writing songs and poems since I was nine years old….I did not have time for childhood. I felt compelled to do this since my first memories. Completely and utterly bored in school and could not resist ditching nearly every day and failing three years in a row. Causing me to run away and live on my wits from the ages of 13 to 17. I joined the Army at 17 (again running away). I am self educated and may be lacking some, or all of the formal skills required to be a writer of any sort…but you be the judge. I am not sure it matters to me; at least I get it out of my heart and mind, which is my only true objective.
Some of my works are dark and on the brink of insanity, I have attempted to express the few genuine smiles I've found along the way. The works may not appeal to everyone, but everyone is welcome to read them. Thank you for visiting.
