Hello! I was born in Bogota, Colombia, the second-eldest of eight siblings of a Polish-American father and a blue-blooded, Colombian-Chilean mother.
My upbringing paint-brushed wanderlust onto my life canvas. To date, time spent in 39 countries and delivering speeches in 17 taught me to appreciate ethnic and cultural differences among the widely disparate social and living conditions in Colombia, Chile, Peru, Panama, the 48 contiguous American states and Hawaii, five provinces of Canada, Denmark, Sweden, Netherlands, Germany, the UK, France, Belgium, Italy, mainland China, Russia, and a half-dozen Caribbean island-nations.
Growing up in a cramped household in a suburb in Pennsylvania near Trenton, New Jersey, I learned to fight for personal space among three brothers and four sisters, our parents, and, most times, at least one dog, several fishes in bowls, and a score of neighborhood kids who lived on our block. My refuge was time spent 30 feet up my favorite tree in the woods behind our house.
Being the best liar of the bunch back then, it turns out, was good practice for writing fiction today. My three published novels received international acclaim from readers. My published biographies have earned five-stars on review.
My 39 years in a sales/sales-management/sales-training career supported my writing aspirations and led to my uniquely different LISTEN MORE SELL MORE series of sales books and courses now published in several languages. (The third and final volume of the series is slated for release late in 2020.)
Thought-provoking, rich characterizations written within simple storylines are my preferences to read and write. Writing biographies and ghostwriting memoirs (as fiction and non-fiction) for clients is my passion.
If you curl up with one of my books and find yourself breathless, provoked, inspired, changed, and feeling like you just undertook an important journey that left you satisfied emotionally and intellectually, I will have done my job as your author.
My home is in Clearwater, Florida, but my passport is ready, and my bags can be packed at a moment's notice for any client!
30-year, award-winning sports journalist J. David Miller wrote this about me: “As good as his work is, behind Ron Kule’s prodigious work-ethic lies a heart that beats for others to whom he can give service, expecting in return only the time-honored values of honesty, tolerance, and demonstrated competence. His keen insights into what motivates and inspires people to want to do better have made a difference in my life. Not one to rest on his laurels, he would rather effect positive changes in those close to him, and the world, no matter the personal consequences. These qualities tell us that here is a man of intense personal integrity.” (Thank you, David.)
