Read my blog

I lived in Colorado, USA from 1987 on. I am retired and write mainly poetry as well as fiction and non-fiction. This is my passion and I am actively seeking to be published in print. I have posted many works on various websites and have had some re-published to others. I was recently published in the first issue of a poetry publication, "In The Gesture Of Words" as well as in "Mad Swirl". You can find me on social media usually under the name "mindbringer". I contribute to a local zine called "mindbringer". I am a former Naval Officer with degrees in History, Philosophy, Classical Studies and Computer Information Systems/Computer Networking. I was born in Southern Illinois and have travelled and lived in many places in the United States as well as overseas, including 4 years in the Philippines courtesy of the U.S. Navy. I enjoy fishing, hiking, writing, Tai Chi Chih, reading, chess, camping, history, philosophy, music of most kinds and classical studies. I enjoy spending my time in my personal Library. I consider myself a Trekkie and a Ringer and enjoy playing The Lord Of The Rings Online, Dragonage, Elder Scrolls Online, etc. I welcome your efforts to connect with me!
