Hi Joe! Describe yourself in 5 words:
Caring, loving, giving, descriptive, & enlightening.
Share a short excerpt and blurb of your work (10-100 words):
From Living the Difference:
My sense of awareness as to my sexual preferences began early on in life. While most children at the age of five and younger were fully content playing with toys, watching cartoons, and all the other fun things to do at preschool, in addition to those, I was always mesmerized when I saw a handsome man. That fixation on men would at times occur out of nowhere, seeing a man in a television commercial, taking lunch out to the hired hands on the farm, watching older male students play basketball at the high school games, and many other remembrances.

From Eat, Pray, Love:
I was sitting in the formal dining room of a Scottish castle with seven other men and three delightfully batty British women of a certain age. Wine flowed, haggis was served, and the conversation among a roomful of people who barely knew each other roared on with each course.
Comment on the writing versus publication process, in your experience:
The writing process is much easier; finding the right publisher, one you can trust with your story, is a challenge. Once the book is written and published, the real work begins, that being the promotion of your book!
What is your definition of “good writing”?
Writing from the heart; writing that will entice your reader to want more and to want to pick up your book and continue reading at every opportunity. To accomplish that, a good writer must be a good story teller, along with a good feel of what your intended audience would want to read!
Please share your #1 tip for writers:
Never give up, even when you experience “writer’s block”…
