Writing is a simple tool for me. It's a gift; it can be used to calm, hurt, smooth tension or create war. I have enjoyed writing since a very early age; from short stories and plays, to poems and song lyrics. Writing is one of the greatest key to this universe. We use words each and every day of our lives.
My high school teacher, Mrs. Charlie, encouraged me to write in high school. Poems and lyrics became second nature to me.
At college level I met some of the finest teachers from the East side of the U.S.; Boston, Massachusetts that is.
Some of my mentors are Professor Allen, Parson, Ross and Mr. Owsley. Professor Updike has been one of my biggest mentors.
