About twenty years ago I started writing poetry but after 5 or 6 years tapered off as my personal life improved. Later I became interested in prose and after a few stumbles started taking classes at a local community college in 2013. Recently I took a workshop at San Francisco Writers Grotto. Currently I have one each novel and novella length manuscripts languishing on my shelves waiting for me to decide what to do with them. Right now I am trying to write short stories.
