I am presently residing in El Paso, Texas, where I’ve retired after twenty years of military service with the army. However, my heart still belongs to the greatest city and fast lanes in New York. I was born in the Bronx and have attended Evander Child High School. And even then, I knew there had to be more, but I really didn’t know how or where to start or have any sense of direction. That is one reason why I took it as my personal vendetta to learn more, starting with achieving an interest in catering/gourmet cooking, a bachelor’s degree in human services, and achieving a master’s degree in marriage, family, child therapy. In addition to being a substance abuse counselor and ending as a case manager as well as being an anger resolution therapist, I’m proud to be on the 2006 National Dean’s List and the International Poet Society, where my inspirations has truly been enlightening throughout my career. Alexander’s Short Stories is a unique blend of strange fiction to open the reader’s own imagination as a whole.
