In the early 1990’s I was out of the country, lonely and thousands of miles from home and family. I wrote 600 free verse poems during that time and on my return registered 21 volumes with the U.S. Copyright Office.Writing became my therapy during those two years. I wrote of experiences that left me both surprised, entangled in emotions, and painful to acknowledge. Volume 1 is my first book of poetry – the good, the painful, the confusing.
I’m nearing completion of my memoir, Badge of Color – Breaking the Silence, about becoming the first African American hired for the Santa Ana Police Department, Orange County, CA in December of 1966. Photos and excerpts are in work. Visit my website click HERE for excerpts and information.
I live in California with my wife and five very loving and very spoiled dogs. In my free time I enjoy gardening (very capable green thumb!) and cooking up a variety of new recipes.
