Overview

But in the end, I came to clearly understand what it felt like to be one of The Last of the Mohicans. The final bit of my blood passed away in 1994. I was 41 years old. The lingering aftermath is nothing less than a void … a sphere of darkness. It’s like traveling through one’s life completely covered in a shroud, visible only to oneself. Every morning, every evening, surrounded by friends, it doesn’t matter … if I’m laughing, it’s fake. Smiling, it’s fake. Everything seems to be counterfeit. The essence of the natural world is a long ago, blurred memory for me.

Folks that have suffered a similar fate as mine do all sorts of things to maintain some kind of meaning in their lives. For me, I discovered that writing about these things brought me peace, and even on occasion, joy; but ultimately, we all do what we have to do.

Meet the Author

I was asked recently, why do you write? My response … I write because I remember.Those memories are all that I have of a family departed. I remember the enjoyable times, those that were appalling, along with the occasional sprinkle of contentment.We all struggle with inner demons, sometimes on a daily basis and some have fought these battles for decades … that would be me. I bestowed unsullied trust upon those deemed worthy, yet they knew not the treasure, and this propelled me into oblivion for years.In the end, I’m my happiest when I’m writing as it is my chosen weapon against my enemies within. "The pen is mightier than the sword" is somewhat of a proverb coined by English author Edward Bulwer-Lytton in 1839. Indeed … it is.
