I've been writing poetry since the seventies and am now a published author. I have lived in Indiana, California, and now Virginia. A few years ago I was homeless for two years. I took that experience and started writing. By the end of 2010 I had enough poems for two books of poetry. And I am still writing. In 2013 I fulfilled a long time desire of mine by writing my first novel 'Blackstone - Rising From the Ashes.' This was soon followed by its sequel 'Waking Up the Phoenix.' Both books deal with the paranormal and intense spirituality. I am presently working on a third installment to the series called 'Resurrection.'
