Internationally published author and poet Ronald Joseph Kule, was born in Bogota, Colombia, proud of his heritage. He began writing creatively at age seven. In early grade school days, he performed lead parts in musicals. In high school, he played baseball and football well but sustained greater interest in the performance arts, adding jazz music and reading classic books to his repertoire of pursuits.
At Oakland University in Michigan, he studied international cultures, ethnology and applied philosophy. Then, in New York City he added professional modeling to his resume, and, later in Los Angeles, acting, fine-arts painting - his works are held in private collections - and screenwriting.
His 39-year international sales/sales management/sales training career supported his writing and provided for extensive travel to 35 countries, including mainland China and Russia in the 1980's. Today, Kule writes and publishes books full-time from Clearwater, Florida, where he lives with his wife Sherry, a custom jewelry designer.
