Biography

Basically I have been a traveling poet and writer for most of my life since about 15 or so. I published my first book of poems entitled 'Who Are You?' in 2002. I wrote a children's book entitled, Brother Bear and I about the same time in 2003. To date I have published also a book on Chongqing as well as one on investing in the stock markets. In the future I will publish a humorous book entitled 'The Mystery of Medicine and How to Escape From It'.
I have lived in many places in America, Mexico, Philippines and China. I have found that following the yellow brick road will lead you to the truth. What you do with the truth will change your life. Change is what the earth needs now. No MORE WAR !! Just as Orson Wells said 'war is peace', you always hear this from the US gov. But it is not true. War doesn't bring peace nor safety. War destroys those who would maintain their freedoms mostly. We have allowed the International Banking system and others to become too powerful and now we must rethink our existence in order to safeguard the future. We must vote with our money and our purchases.
It has come to me as I have traveled that there is and has always been more than enough of every thing on this earth for all of us. I have walked the deserts of North America and the Washington Rain Forrest as well. I have gone down the Amazon in South America by boat and walked in its midst. I have visited the most crowded cities of the world, Mexico City, Mexico and Chongqing China.
We all over the world in every school have been denied even the knowledge of how much there is and how we can protect it. There is a light which was produced by Edison and is still burning now over 100 years. When we build things that last such as this then our resources too will last and our earth will sustain its health and balance. There is renewable energy that can be produced in each and every home that is clean and only has the initial cost of construction. This was released world wide by a group called HopeGirl on project Avalon Forum. This business of letting the corporations run governments and politicians with their greedy ways for profit and only offering us outdated technologies in cars and energy only will eventually destroy our green and blue world.
We need to all band together demanding change, seeking and teaching the ways to love our earth and care for it and for sure we need to take the care of it out of the hands of the monopolies that are indeed trying to destroy her. We no longer should allow them to harm her and go unpunished. People are not evil but monopolies run by evil profiteers are.
I have attained a variety of experiences over the years. I began to work at about 9 years of age working with my brother in our family tomato selling business and then did many other things over the years.
I have owned my own construction firm and done well in sales at times and marketing of many different products. I have been a licensed insurance producer and stock vendor. I served both in the Navy and National Guard.
Over the last 20+ years I have studied nutrition and history extensively. I did special studies in religions and politics as well as economics.
Not only have I studied these things but have also put lots of these studies to practical uses as well.
Presently I am a professor of English in Chongqing University in China.
I enjoy providing healthy foods to my family and friends and helping others to find a healthy way of life in counseling.
Please don't hesitate to leave me a note on my website or drop me a line if you would like to discuss what I have put into my books.
You my readers are greatly appreciated.
Thanks,
Please post a review of what you read. I appreciate it greatly.

Smashwords Interview

What is your writing process?
I think about the message I want to send and that may go on for many months. I begin to take notes and discover the title I think will entice my audience to want to know more.
Then I begin to research the topics I will discuss more in depth in order to deliver the most amount of correct and precise information possible to my audience.
I then begin to write when my heart says it is a good day. My mood and my heart and my situation must all be aligned to write as if I were writing poetry.
My writing then becomes critical as I cannot stay in this position long.
I study more and write and study and research and write and after sometimes months I begin to edit
what has been put down. I begin also to find others to help in the edit process and ask them what they think
of the topic and the interest level as well.
Finally after an arduous time period I will publish.
Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
It was a poem called "Winkin' Blinkin' and Nod" and my father's voice was like none I have ever heard since. He read with passion and excitement and authority in such a way that I never forgot it and have always admired it ever since. He took me there on the river of Crystal light and into the sea of blue, i.e. my life's dream. I to this day have sought to recreate that voice and ability within me.

  • Everybody's Got to Have a Dream on Aug. 17, 2013

    Very good Marvin. I liked it. Thanks for writing and thanks for giving it to me to read. I too have accomplished many dreams but never really looked at it as much more than daydreams into reality. I know now that I did take on a road map at times to accomplish them. I am presently teaching in University in China. I wish you well as a writer and accomplished one at that. Oscar http://www.love2liveway.com
