Birthdate:Sep 18
Location:Houston, Texas, United States of America
Born in San Diego, raised in an armpit called National City. Lived in Salzburg, Austria 1967-1972 where I played classical piano to death at the Mozarteum. Lived two doors down from Mozart's old apartment on the Getriedegasse. From there, two marriages. My son is 35, second marriage daughter 14. Tried oil on canvas painting. Had a one man show because I had nothing else to do. Started writing at the request of a coffee house friend. I was 54 then. So I wrote, for the worse or better of it. Finally got a whole book laid on an agent's desk in Dallas. You know how hard that is to come by, an agent with no time and a big name who takes time to read. Well, the novel failed, although there was a huge interest in Amelia Earhart at the time. Since then, poetry has remained my gig. Now, after some very-much-insisting pestering by my old coffee house friend, I am writing again. But you see, I don't expect anything to happen, but what the hell, huh? I'm 68. That puts me in the geriatric numbers. How'd I get that old? Ask the devil in the deep blue sea: I met him once at Damion's Christening. My main philosophy out of this life is it's all much to do about tiny footsteps.
