I never wanted to write but now I must. It is a therapy, a creative outlet, a rope that I pull myself up with, the wild strawberry that I savor as I cling to the cliffside. My stories are culled from my short but eventful 35 years. A childhood in No Man's Land, parental divorce, culture shock, the Peace Corps in Romania, teaching ESL in South Korea, running an internet pharmacy, surviving prison, anxiety, the annihilation of confidence, working as an instructor in a homeless shelter, breaking down walls, redemption, and much more. Feel free to let me know what you think about my writing....You can find more at www.ihaveavoicetoo.com.
