I am a Los Angeles-based poet, novelist, blogger and lyricist. This blog is devoted to my longer form poetry. I have written hundreds of poems since the late 1990s and I plan to publish my first poetry collection BACKYARD POETRY on Amazon and Smashwords in Summer 2017. I am also planning to bring out many more collections featuring my poems and lyrics in the coming years. Please check out this blog for more updates and details about my upcoming poetry books.
