About the Author

Now 78, I wrote these poems between my mid-teens and my mid-forties, gathering them into manuscripts in the early ‘80s. I was briefly published in two unpaid journals in the early ‘80s, but made the decision not to publish further. For the most part, I have not written since then. My paid career (23 years) was spent as a clinical social worker, working with Child Protective Services (now retired). I made the decision to publish these works after being “nudged” for several years. I hope you find them pleasing.
