Internationally published author/biographer and poet Ronald Joseph Kule, was born in Bogota, Colombia. He started to write 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 a greater interest in the performance arts, adding jazz music and reading classic books to his repertoire.
At Oakland University in Michigan, he studied international cultures, ethnology and applied philosophy. In New York City, he did professional modeling and, later in Los Angeles, added training in acting and fine-arts painting - his works are held in private collections.
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. Public-speaking engagements in 17 countries followed.
Today, Kule writes and publishes books full-time from Clearwater, Florida, where he lives with his wife Sherry, a custom jewelry designer.

In 2011, with award-winning sports journalist J David Miller, Kule co-authored CAROLINA BASEBALL: PRESSURE MAKES DIAMONDS, foreword by three-time NCAA Baseball Coach of the Year, Ray Tanner. Miller and Kule also published the eBook version, PRESSURE MAKES DIAMONDS A TIMELESS TALE OF AMERICA'S GREATEST PASTIME, available online. The book's meticulous text covers the history of baseball and then dives into the history of (University of South Carolina) Gamecocks baseball from 1892 through their back-to-back national championship wins of 2010 and 2011.
