I originally started this book with the intentions of a children's book. I
quickly realized this was not going to happen. I thought about how I could
get effective messages across without multiple words of boredom. It then
came to me using comedy and illustrations.
Through my daily frustrations, with life in today’s world, I decided to break
from a silent crowd and speak out on what many of us think about in the
hopes to revive a few brain cells whether we are in agreement or not.
Throughout history civilization after civilization is conquered with selfish
visions of greed and control. For one reason or another, there is always a
select few who feel they are superior to the rest.
Is it about time we actually remember history and who we are without
pretending we all have dementia?
I often think about who invented the word “Rules” and who said they were
right in the first place?
It is passed time to stand up peacefully and share what we believe in from
within. The word “NO” is in our vocabulary for a reason.
I have the attitude that you can accomplish anything you want if you put
your mind to it. Life has many obstacles, the challenge is to move forward
in a positive manner.
I am the oldest of three boys...
I come from a family where my dad worked all day as a postal carrier and
my mom stayed at home and took care of us. In their spare time they would
throw newspapers and shop garage sales for deals to resell, just to put
food on the table.
I learned at a young age to take responsibility and to work hard to achieve
my accomplishments. I do not claim to be perfect and at the same time I
was very stubborn and learned much from my own mistakes.
As a slow learner, I tried the marriage thing 3 times realizing that wasn’t
working. I always wanted a relationship like my parents, but after buying
the same house back, I realized that times were different.
I made some choices like all of us that we sometimes regret, but I have the
gift of children and now grandchildren.
I have experienced the loss of a son, which I would not wish upon my worst
enemies. No one should have to experience the loss of their child.
I have dabbled in politics, traveled the world as a photographer, promoted art events, written 3 books and presently working on
a sequel to my latest book.
