Born in the Bronx, New York, I have all ways been a dreamer at heart. Even though I have learn very little in school while growing up, I took it on my own to learn more. Yet there was something missing. I began to write poetry in the late 70s and having 80 published individual poems. I started writing fiction and non-fiction with many to inspired. However, my passion to write was placed on hold, in order to improve myself. I became a Chef majoring in Catering/Gourmet cooking and joined the army as a career completing 20 years of service. I achieved my Bachelor’s degree in Human Services and a Master in Married, Family, Child Therapy, while changing career to Substance Abuse. Then on to retiring as a Case Manager with the adult probation, as it inspired me to write once more and continuing be an Author for many years over.
