Good day All,
My name is Mark Grinage. Born in the City of Brotherly Love.Raised on the eastern seaboard,up north and down south.Most of my adult life in the Bay Area of Northern California.In such places as:San Francisco's,Tenderloin District,Hayward,Union City,Vallejo,Oakland,and Berkeley.
My writing began as a young teen,poetry and love songs.Through the years I kept pen to paper in poetry,and song,small stories led to screenplays.As lifes hats change in survival,writing always stayed a constant.
One evening I was watching Roots.The part where Alex Haley,decided to become a writer.That struck me as I would write a letter to a young lady as he wrote letters for his fellow shipmates in the Service.
Upon deciding to write, a great freedom came over me,like when one stands on an empty beach alone,with the entire ocean before you.Beautiful simply beautiful.I can't picture myself doing anything else,although I would to feed my wife and kids.
It's truly a blessing from God to do something that you love.PG/Praise God
