From the Author Ronald Joseph Kule
WELCOME! We're glad you're here!
Almost 300 years ago, Leonardo Da Vinci wrote, "Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication," and I agree.
Drawn from a well steeped in difficult learning curves, crushing heartaches, personal lows and highs, and a few professional accomplishments, my writing expresses my childhood naivete, which I hope never to lose.
I've also worked to keep myself sensitive and my lifestyle simple - the better to echo the power of that spirited aesthetic expressed so well by Da Vinci.
My work borrows from my training and experiences within several media: Professional modeling in Manhattan... drawing, painting and acting in Los Angeles... writing screenplays and having published my poetry and articles in several publications... even selling and managing salespeople internationally. All that I have lived through has enhanced and nurtured my imagination expressed in millions of words.
Time spent in 35 countries, including speaking engagements in 17 of them, continues to help me to place in non-fiction and fiction formats not only what I have seen around me, but also what I envision can be.
Larry Gluck, Founder of Mission: Renaissance Art Academy in California, mentored me to "draw what you see." Fred Cooke, Founder of the LA Academy of Dramatic Arts, directed me to Shakespeare's Hamlet: "Suit the action to the word, the word to action." As a result, when working deep inside of a story, I "see" the action and use the essences 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 favorite genre, biography/memoir, rests on pillars of trust, humility and duplication. Someone's life story is nothing to be toyed with; they are timeless legacies and lasting reservoirs of knowledge awaiting future generations of readers, staying alive beyond the passing of someone's lifetime.
My personal goal is to release more fiction work. Writing best-selling novels uplifts and inspires my purpose, which is to communicate the unbridled spirituality of our Native State, of who we really are.
My first novel, for example, Ruined by Murder Addicted to Love, explores the death of love and beauty and how to make each rise from their ashes. When Carlos Almaron and Carmela Ariana learn how to breathe new life into their relationship, they, and we, discover what true love really means.
People Are My Inspiration
I've met tens of thousands of people, and the changing nature of their multiple cultures, as well as the time-honored habits of all of Mankind, force me to write creatively across several genres, not just one.
Perhaps, though, at least one of my books will catch 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 are no other reasons for me to write than you being here!
