About Me

Everything I write is for one purpose. It is to leave a paper trail for my grand children and theirs. My poems are really short prose in verse.
My stories are created from memories and may not be historically accurate. I believe that creative writing and verse flows from individual perception and imagination and should not be framed by rules. I am inspired by the Irish writers of the Great Blasket Island and my grandfather, who was a wordsmith. I am easily bored by big words and prefer simple phrases.

Why do you write?

My favorite quote was written by Diego Marchi. These four things are often the basis of my work.

In life we all have an unspeakable secret, an irreversible regret, an unreachable dream and an unforgettable love.

I see stories everywhere and find inspiration in the smallest things.
