Influences

My influences are far and wide including: Richard Wright, Margaret Mitchell, Edgar Allen Poe, Charles Dickens and Claude Brown. The one book out of the many I have read over the years that stays with me more than any is Claude Brown's "Manchild in the Promise Land" and Norman Mailer chose this book as a favorite too. Other than individual writers, I am highly influenced by nature and the sociological aspects of life and how it is relative to our everyday thinking. Each day we leave our abodes there are choices to make that fall in line with following the norms of society. Abstracts to the norm are interesting to me.

Upcoming Works

"Rovella Starr" and the Re-release of "What Happened to Suzy" (my autobiography).
