As a young man I wanted to be one thing: a writer. My adult life caused a pause in my writing pursuit. However, in 2008, some forced solitude brought that dream back to reality. I began writing for a wide variety of publications and, after a decade of silence, I started crafting poems.
I published a volume of my 2008 - 2012 writing called Choosing an Afterlife in 2012. I am collecting my outdoors related poems on a blog called First Drafts here on I Write Arkansas. The revised poems will eventually become my next volume of poetry. All the poems will be outdoors and Arkansas related.
