At a very young age I realized that writing was a way of escape. As a young gay black kid, son of a Navy veteran and housewife with many talents, grandson of a Baptist Bishop, I needed an escape. Writing became that for me. Why did I need an escape? Well as you may know, in the late 80’s to early 2000’s people didn’t have a healthy appreciation for the LGBT culture. Now, at the age 32, I am in the military, and I realized that I allowed our cultural view of adulthood, the world, and my military lifestyle to take me away from my passion of writing. My current goals are the following: Write, Submit, and Get Something Published. This is me.
