About Me
Returned to writing in 2006 and not what I expected. No plans going forward. If I turn heads as a nobody, I can thank the stars. Lost in my words is greatest reward I hope to achieve. Professional (3 time state-awarded) broadcast journalist: radio news director, columnist, talk show host, freelancer, wrote/voiced stories for NPR and CBS Radio, TV news assignment editor, college newspaper & literary editor. Add it all up and…
Type of Writer
Many novel ideas. Not ripe enough. Keep returning to poetry, an undisciplined writer. Life’s little interruptions.
Writing Style
Evolving, but don't see where this maturation process is headed. Love input.
Staying healthy, maintaining body, basketball. Writing, of course. Huge fan of undiscovered music. Seek true love, peace & bliss. If I knew where they exist, would love to commune there.

Favorite Genres
I confess: RomCom, just this side of The Notebook...unless I've been drinking, then maybe Hallmark?
Favorite Poets
Emily Dickinson, ee cummings, William Carlos Williams, to begin with. I could read modern poets, but no one coalesces with my modern day world at the moment.
Favorite Music
Eclectic. I'll pass on most rap, though can vibe with it. Check my blog entries for links to music videos by music acts that have caught my attention.
Favorite Movies
Anything where the malevolent, misunderstood anti-hero (like me) is redeemed and walks off to leave all behind, but has one person who understood his darkness all along, joins him to quest his vision, unify as kindred souls. Not Batman/Robin.
Favorite Shows
Community (binged 12x) Private Eyes (5 seasons of will they until final, one kiss) Monk The Office (Michael/Jim/Pam) Letter Kenny (liking less) NO REALITY NO POLICE PROCEDURALS NO SHOWS W/ CORPSES (even if RomCom) Unless, Dexter (he could be me)
