My writing career began in grade school, where I became interested in reporting and poetry I wrote lots of poetry and prose in High School, then developed a philosophy in graduate school After graduating from LSU and USC I became interested in dramatic writing for theater and film My latest works have been a combination of spirituality, suspense and philosophy Back in 2006 I wrote 4 major books, which came out of several small newsletters I registered with the Library of Congress My present interest are in screenwriting and spirituality how to express religious truths for the screen One discovery as a writer is that you are always searching for the perfect way to say the same basic human experiences withmeaning, helping the reader to remember a word, a phrase a meaningful event so that the author and the reader can relate.
