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 of 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 near Bristol, Pennsylvania, I learned to fight for personal space among three brothers and four sisters, two parents, and at least one dog, several fishes in bowls, and a score of neighborhood kids who lived on our block. My refuge was 30 feet up my favorite tree in the woods behind our house.
Being the best liar of the bunch back then was good practice for my writing fiction today; it seasoned my imagination! My published novels and biographies (CHEF TELL, AVA FRICK, D.V.M., TERRY HITCHCOCK) have received international acclaim from readers and earned five-star reviews.
My 39-year career in sales/sales-management/sales-training 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 early in 2021.)
Thought-provoking, rich characterizations written within simple storylines are my preference to read and to write. Writing biographies, ghostwriting memoirs, and crafting novels for my 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 for more stamps, and my bags can be packed at a moment's notice for a new 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.)
