The bulk of the work was written specifically for performance purposes. A few poems were written with publication in mind, but even those usually ended up being revised into spoken-word pieces in the end. These are the pieces that were written, read aloud, rewritten again and again. The proven crowd pleasers. The poems in this ebook are a sampling of the work available in paperback under the title, Lines to Voice.

About the Author
A lifelong hobbyist, I've have been producing poems and stories as a sideline for nearly fifty years. During that time my stories and poems have appeared on occasion in small press reviews and various local publications. Meanwhile, I attended college at the University of New Mexico and San Francisco State University and worked as a retail clerk, bicycle mechanic, carpenter's helper, janitor, teacher's aid, gallery clerk, car rental agent and garage man, cashier/bookkeeper, assistant editor, typesetter and graphic artist, proofreader/copy editor, ad salesman, public relations specialist, rental property owner/manager, office machine/software salesman. Then, at the ripe old age of fifty, I went back to school at the College of Santa Fe to become a high school English teacher. Now in retirement, I finally have time to polish up and publish works that have been accumulating for decades. Cheers!
