I started writing poetry in the mid-seventies. I have an Associates Degree in English Lit and have attended many writing seminars and classes: 1) there are basics you tend to forget, and 2) association with other writers. I had a one-act produced, and numerous poems and short stories published. My first novel, "The Leaf," came out in March, 2010. I have added three books to my list of publications since that time: "Love Your Enemy," "Carol LaCroix's Story," and "Prison City which came out in September, 2013. I am currently working on another novel: "Marta."
