I am the author of "Neruda's Memoirs: Poems" (T.S. Poetry Press, 2011). I own a small art-licensing business, Transformational Threads, http://www.transformationalthreads.com; have many friends in the arts and publishing fields; enjoy attending theatre, dance performances, concerts, movies, poetry readings, and art museums and galleries; own two Westies; and have one son, four sisters, and two brothers. I made my living as a writer and editor for more than 30 years and retired in 2007. I'm not done writing yet, as you can see.
