I was raised On a dairy farm in Iowa with seven brothers and a sister, then off into the wild blue yonder in the Marine Corps, I've lived in many strange and wonderful placed, had three wonderful children along the way, survived a terrible marriage, to come out stronger, with insight into what life, love, pain and laughter is. Through it all Christ held me up, and kept me strong. After 3 years of being divorced I found a wonderful man that lifts me up and encourages me. My advice to all poets, write from your heart, your experiences, and you will always be a winner.
