How I Got Started Writing:
My creative writing blossomed at age six. My love affair with words, stronger than ever after 60 years, still embraces my childhood naivete bordered by difficult learning curves, heartbreaking aches and losses, personal triumphs and professional accomplishments. Throughout my journey I've worked to stay simple and sensitive in order to express the power of the spirited beauty that is within each human being.
I like to borrow from my training in other media. Drawing, painting, modeling and acting have enhanced my imagination; these still help me to express in non-fiction and fiction, what I see around me and what I envision could be.
For me, the rules of other artistic media apply just as well to creative writing. Larry Gluck, Founder of Mission: Renaissance Art Academy in California, mentored me to "draw what you see." Fred Cooke admonished me and my fellow thespians to, as Shakespeare put it, "Suit the action to the word, the word to action." These days, when working deep inside of a story, what I "see" comes out with words, phrases, sentences, paragraphs and chapters -- the elements of my favorite artistic "sandbox."
Readers seem to like my work. They have responded with, "I can easily picture what you write," "You paint pictures with your words," or "You changed my life." My book reviews all have five-stars.
My favorite genre, biography, is a trust-filled, humbling occupation. A person's life story, certainly nothing to be toyed with, can be a timeless legacy and reservoir of knowledge for future generations.
Readers who write to me about my work and how it affects them have my heart; they render me speechless when words cannot convey my gratitude for letting me touch their lives.
I prefer that my work speaks for me, because there our connection is eternal and priceless.
