Biography

I'm hardcore on human rights and I do what I can to improve society. I enjoy writing as a creative outlet. I throw intimate aspects of myself out there when I share my work and appreciate readers who are willing to do the same to be a part of the journey and perhaps we'll have lived a little more and with a higher level of beauty in our existence. To become more in touch with my interests and aspirations please find my author interview at any of my websites.

Smashwords Interview

What are your favorite books, and why?
Flowers in the Attic by V.C. Andrews is up there for me. The last pages just struck such a chord I sobbed like a baby and it hit me; an author can reach into your world and change you! It was pretty astounding to sit there as a pre-teen bawling my eyes out but it happened and it made the world of literature take on a whole new reality for me.

Old Yeller by Fred Gipson. Another bawl-your-eyes-out classic. I remember our grade teacher was reading it to our class daily and we were bringing supplies of tissue to class! Imagine little second graders, including the boys, coming equipped with tissues to ride out the storms of pups and boys bonding in the Ozarks! What that author did was take a young group and taught us to express our emotions and that it was OK to do that. We formed a bond in that class through that tale and we were better for it. That teacher couldn't have taught us compassion or caring for animals or empathy through hurt in a more brilliant way!

I had left books for years as I adjusted to teenage-hood but one day I picked up "Go Ask Alice" in high school and it again sent me on a journey through the turmoil of a teen who got into drugs. My heart ached reading it and at the time it inspired me to pick up poetry again. I wrote a poem for my English class which I discuss in a piece in my latest "Book of Past". What's amazing is that I took that story and wrote my own inspired poem and read it to my class and at the end of it I was startled to see the effect it had created! I swear I thought I'd brought the storm clouds into that classroom...amazing how we can paint a scene with words... authors can teach so much if you only care to listen...
How do you approach cover design?
Interestingly, I picked up writing again sharing poetry and literature on a global art sharing site where there is quite a large community of writers posting their work back and forth, from diverse people across the world to teens in the US who were expressing themselves through poetry. On this site I found a person who connected with me that was also an incredible digital artist and now does my cover designing! He resides in the U.K. and he literally writes with light! It's cool that he also read some of my literature and that we were interacting on art sharing before I even approached him about covers. As it's gone, I provide the concepts and the general graphics and he then creates digital renderings that I find out of this world! Actually to begin with the first design was a logo for my art website but I then loved it so much and connected it to my poetry to such a degree it's now the hot/cold fire and ice image on The Book of Past. He's always an e-mail away and is such a talented artist. He goes by Phantanomaly and his digital creations are surreal and breathtaking. He's already designed the cover for my upcoming Science Fiction/Fantasy novel I'm writing called "The Watcher" which you can find on my website blog. I love fantastic artists and promoting them and he brings my ideas to light!
