    greetings from long beach, california

    hello there. i have been a writer all my life, it's just that no one else knew it until recently when i began to actively embrace "the writing life." i am getting a late start and am now well beyond the halfway point of my life. i figured that i needed to get these ideas, emotions and stories that i have been thinking about for decades on to paper before i forget them and can no longer find the words to express them. i live in long beach california and have been exploring the poetry scene locally during the past year as a way to get involved in the literary community here in lbc. there is a lot going on here and i have found a very supportive community in these fine and talented folks.

    i write poetry, flash, non-fiction, fiction, etc. i have just a few things published, and am working on getting more out there into the world. i look forward to "meeting" all of you on the interwebbies.

    Hi from Thousand Oaks!


    I'm past half, too, and just trying to get the story down that's rattled around inside me for a while.
    I'm also on twitter where I routinely upset people. at pltavormina

    Hello from the Bay!

    I always admire those who are into poetry and can craft such nice verse. It seems so simple, but I personally find it unbelievably difficult! Looking forward to seeing your work
