Born in 1947, once a San Francisco hippie, living in Haight at the height of its glory, with two MAs, one in Creative Writing and one in the History of Consciousness, but unwilling to finish my Ph.D thesis, I chose, instead, to be become a filmmaker, script writer and to live a semi-legitimate life in Los Angeles, California, USA. Happily married to my college sweetheart, who, too, is in the business of film, I’ve directed three feature films, many television shows and children’s programs. Two children’s books, Ned Smiles, and ABC For You and Me, three published short stories, the winner of the Rosebud Award For Creative Writing for the short story, “The Cowboy of My Heart,” and four published poems, in Response, Moon and other now gone and mourned poetry journals comprise the visible part of my literary life. Despite the sadness reflected in much of my poetry, I consider myself a happy person.
