From the Author Ronald Joseph Kule
Welcome! Glad you're here!
Almost 300 years ago, Leonardo Da Vinci wrote, "Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication."
I agree with the Master. Drawn from my own well steeped in difficult learning curves, crushing heartaches, personal lows and highs, with a few professional accomplishments thrown in, my writing continues to express the naivete, sensitivity and imagination I had as a child, which I hope never to lose, because from my vulnerability comes my power as an artist.
I've also worked to keep my lifestyle simple - the better to echo that spirited aesthetic expressed so well by Da Vinci.
My works borrow from my training and experiences within several media: Professional modeling in Manhattan... drawing, painting and acting in Los Angeles... writing screenplays and having my poetry and articles published here and there... even selling, managing and training salespeople internationally.
Time spent in 35 countries, including speaking engagements in 17 of them, continues to help me place in non-fiction and fiction formats not only what I have seen around me, but also what I have felt, and what I envision can be.
Larry Gluck, Founder of Mission: Renaissance Art Academy in California, advised me to "draw what you see." Fred Cooke, Founder of the LA Academy of Dramatic Arts, directed me to Hamlet: "Suit the action to the word, the word to action." As a result, working deep inside of a story, I "see" the action and use the essence and tools of my artistic "sandbox" -- words, phrases, sentences, paragraphs, chapters and books -- to convey what I see.
Readers tell me they like my work. "I can easily picture what you write;" "You paint pictures with your words;" "Your writing changed my life." All of my book reviews earn five-star ratings, for which I'm grateful.
My quality of my work within my favorite genre, biography/memoir, rests on pillars of trust, humility and duplication with my client. Someone's life story is nothing to be toyed with; each is a timeless legacy and a lasting reservoir of knowledge that awaits future generations of readers beyond the passing of someone's lifetime.

My personal goals include the release of more fiction work. Writing novels uplifts and inspires me and my purpose to communicate the unbridled nature of who we really are. Spirit-Beings, we are living a human realm of experience but are creators limited only by our imaginations.
My first novel, for example, Ruined by Murder Addicted to Love, explores the death of love and how to make love rise again from its ashes. When the characters, Carlos Almaron and Carmela Ariana, learn how to breathe new life into their relationships, we discover with them what true love means and what will make it flourish and prosper.
People Inspire Me
Having met tens of thousands of people, as well as experienced firsthand the changing nature of their multiple cultures, I realize that it is the time-honored virtues of Man that force me to write creatively across several genres, not just one.
Perhaps, though, at least one of my books will provoke your curiosity. When it does, my hope is that the hours we spend "together" will be thought-provoking, emotional and, ultimately, entertaining and inspiring for you. After all, there is no other reason for me to write than you being here!
So, please, share my journey with you. And feel free to write, post, or email whatever you feel or think, and about whatever you discover here. My free, interactive newsletter can be a useful platform for that purpose.
Business inquiries and requests for commission for me to write a biography or memoir should be directed to my publishing company at KuleBooksLLC@gmail.com.
Do check back every so often to see what is new, too.
