born in Cuba. raised in California. I'm a father and grandfather. one son, one daughter, one granddaughter, one grandson.
I've been writing poetry and short fiction for 40 years plus. in that time I've been paid approximately $18 for my writing. most editors reply with rejection slips. several have told me my poetry isn't poetry and that my fiction sucks. oh well. I write to entertain myself, and the rare souls who think like me.
