Ronald Joseph Kule is an internationally published book and short-story author and poet born in Bogota, Colombia, and proud of his heritage. He began writing creatively at age seven. In school days he played baseball and football well but he had a greater interest in the performance arts -- he performed lead parts in musical plays. Later, he added jazz music and reading classic books to his repertoire of interest.
At Oakland University in Michigan, he studied international cultures, ethnology and applied philosophy, later adding formal training in New York City and Los Angeles in acting, fine-arts painting - his works are held in private collections - and screenwriting.
Having supported his writing with a 39-year, successful sales and sales-training career, Kule writes and publishes books full-time from Clearwater, Florida, where he lives with his wife Sherry, a custom jewelry designer.
