About the Author Ronald Joseph Kule
"People tell me, "You write well... you create emotional stories... paint pictures with your words, etc." Well, I write what I see right in front of me, adding my imagination here and there."
Ron Kule grew up - maybe like yourself - in a cramped suburban house, competing for personal space among seven brothers and sisters, two parents and (most times) at least one dog, several fish that lived short lives, and a score of kids who lived on the block. He held his ground, at times, from 30 feet up his favorite tree behind his family's house.
"Turns out that being the best liar of the bunch was pretty good practice for writing fiction later on!" he said.
At 23, unable anymore to sleep on friends' couches and beg for PB&J sandwiches - he had arrived in LA penniless, he started what became a 39-year sales and sales-management career that supported his artistic aspirations and led to his first published book, SELL BETTER SELL EASIER SELL ANYTHING ARTFULLY. Since then, he has added a three-book, sales-training series of courses, LISTEN MORE SELL MORE in three languages. (Volume Two is slated for release in 2017.
"Nearly a dozen published books of mine are available online; one published by Skyhorse Publishing of NYC. Also, I ghostwrite and edit books for clients."
Born of Polish-American and blue-blooded, Colombian-Chilean parents, Kule was born in Bogota, Colombia. His heritage paint-brushed a wanderlust onto his life canvas: he has spent time in 35 countries, performing public-speaking engagements in 17. He learned to appreciate ethnic and cultural differences by observing directly the disparate social classes and living conditions of people in Colombia, Chile, Peru, and the 48 contiguous American states, plus Hawaii.
"Thought-provoking, rich characterizations written within simple story lines are among my favorite books to read and write, albeit biographies are a personal favorite. 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 the author."
Currently, the author Ronald Joseph Kule works out of Clearwater, Florida, but more travel is definitely on his horizon. "My passport yearns for more nation-stamps, and my bags can be packed on a moment's notice," he advised.

Writing of the author's character and the quality of his work, award-winning, 30-year sports journalist J. David Miller wrote this:
“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 has 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.”
