My Stories and Poems

I've been writing stories and poems for most of my life. I started writing poems in my early teens and fondly remember my father carrying around a small collection of my poems in his billfold and showing them off to his friends and customers. During my professional career as a teacher and school administrator, I wrote very little poetry or fiction, as I was immersed in my work. Retirement has changed that, and now I'm back at trying to find my writing voice again. My hope is that you may find some of my work interesting and enjoyable.
