Biographical Information

Americas - USA

I am a retired Professor of Psychology who has taught at the college level for the past 42 years, and have now decided to become a poet.  During the next few months you will have the opportunity to read somewhere around 125 of my poems.  If you like what you read, feel free to contact me and tell me how you feel about my writing.  Sometime this coming summer I will be putting together my first book of poetry entitled Celebrating Life While Dancing With the Dead which will include the poems that you have been reading on  Also if you know a publisher that might be interested in publishing my poems please let me know as I, at this point in time, am relatively unknown in the world of poetry even though I am a fairly decent poet (I guess?).  Also I am married, have been married for the past 44 years, to a wonderful woman, I have a wonderful son, Mike, age 35, my best friend, who is a Licensed Professional Counselor, and an animal companion, a dog named Hayden, ten years old, who I love dearly.

The best to you, and I will be looking forward to hearing from you.
