Born in May on the 31st at 1:06 a.m., my first residence was in Dallas, Tx. I am the oldest of four siblings. Victim of violent childhood. Parents divorced at age 6 after 2 yr separation. A wild teen. Married at 18, to Diana Roe. My son Devyn Ray was born when I was 22 yrs old. My son is now 20 and he has a son, Hayden that is 13 months old now. Got married a 2nd time in 2000, to Elizabeth after living with her since 1994. Had a daughter with her in 1998. Kristyn Adelle. Now divorced since Sept. 6th 2011. As a single man and recovering addict, I've found myself homeless, carless, jobless, and pennyless. I've got my clothes, my writing, a few files, and a few trinkets to hang on to. If there is a silver lining, it would have to be that in spite of all this, I'm free to point myself in any direction. In the words of Robert Frost, " I'm choosing the path less traveled ". For the first time in my life, I am responsible for no-one but myself.
