i am a published author. the 1st of 3 true life novels, Euclid Avenue Our scars mean something was published and released in 2009. it is controversial and traumatic, depicting the 1st 24 years of my life. it begins with the discovery, at age 4 of my little brother's lifeless body floating face down in the bathtub. the subsequent childhood years are filled with parental neglect, deceit, theft and manipulation. full time employment begins at age 12. the teenage years are characterized by expermentation to habits to addictions that culminate in a wager that results in a loveless marriage that ends in divorce and nearly in death. late in 2010, the chapter entitled Water, which depicts the drowning incident, became the focus of a cold case homicide investigation. 2011 is the 50th anniversary of the event.
by writing i am attempting to reign in over 5 decades of anger issues. if my work also helps someone else to better their lives then i have bettered mine.
