I was born on a cold October day in 1975. Born into a poor family, I had little, but needed for nothing. My love for words became apparent to my family at a young age, when I took to reading, and always had to have a book. This love for books continued on, and soon I was putting my own words to paper. I was always a fan of creative writing, and often impressed my grade school teachers with my fantastic stories.
At the age of 15, I wrote a poem called "Abused" for a grade 9 poetry assignment. I assure you I wasn't abused as a child, but the power ofthe poem brought the adminstration of the school to the class room with a barrage of questions. After assuring them I was taken care of, they praised my work. four years later I entered a contest sponsored by the Canadian Chamber of Contemporary Poetry. Of thousands of contestants, i was in the top 200, and had my poem "Bob" published in thier anthology " Scaling the Face of Reason". This was my first true accomplishement, and my first published work. Since then I have been writing, and Have had a few articles and a poem entitled " A Letter to my Unborn Child" published by Parents for Parents Magazine.
I currently live with wife, Jocelyn, and our two children Julian And Adora. I am still writing, and trying to get published. I have 3 children's books that I have written, and am currently shopping these to publishers. I also have written a coffee table book, which I too am shopping, and am currently working on a fantasy novel. While working on this projects, I still have a blog i contribute to and i write for Arts East as well.
I have recently entered into the field of Epublishing, and just published my first book, "The Common Man's Guide to Women as told by the Common Man
