Hello! I was born in Bogota, Colombia, the second of eight kids 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 by direct observation. I've seen the widely disparate social and living conditions in Colombia, Chile, Peru; the 48 contiguous American states and Hawaii; five provinces of Canada; several European countries; mainland China and Russia; and a half-dozen Caribbean island-nations.
Growing up in a cramped, suburban house in Pennsylvania, I fought for personal space among my three brothers and four sisters, the parents, and, most times, at least one dog, several fishes in bowls, and a score of neighborhood kids who lived on our block. Refuge was time spent 30 feet up my favorite tree in the woods behind our house.
Being the best liar of the bunch was good practice for writing fiction. Today, my three published novels receive international acclaim and, along with my biographies, earn five-stars on review.
For 39 years, I managed a sales/sales-management/sales-training career to support my writing aspirations and led to my LISTEN MORE SELL MORE sales books and course series now published in multiple languages. (The final book, Volume 3, releases later in 2020.)
Thought-provoking, rich characterizations written within simple storylines are my preferences to read and write. Writing biographies is my personal 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.
Home is 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.”
Dear reader, thanks for visiting. It is for YOU that I write.
