My love of writing is the result of extreme introversion as a child, brought on by life in a very limited environment. Writing became my solace, my companion in my many moments alone. But then writing became an entity, advising, encouraging. I've come to recognize what comes through my pen as the voice of my inner being; and its guidance weighs heavy in my actions. It's not a stretch for me to say that writing saved my life.
After over 40 years of "closet writing" I am now stepping out into the greater writers world, to share what I consider to be the greatest contribution I can make to humanity. The value implied here is my writing's value to me, as it has led me out a dark wilderness into the light. But it is said, something to the effect that a rising tide lifts all boats thereupon. My fondest desire, is to inspire; my greatest dream is to contribute something that will in some measure raise the consciousness of this great nation, and humanity as a whole.
