I have been an ameteur writer since my teens. I worked at a retail nursery in my youth, and also did stints of voluntary service in a Children's home in Virginia and also at a men's rehab in Indiana. I have written poetry and consider myself an ameteur lyricist. As a Christian, I have written for several Sunday school papers. I also blog on occasion. You could say that the written word is one of my passions. As far as myself personally, I am an adopted child. I went through the paces of the foster system and through several foster homes until my adoption at age ten. I am currently working on a collection of essays about my early childhood experiences and about what some have called my rather interesting life.
