I am a writer of inspirational poetry, song lyrics, short stories, and novels. I have been published in several of these areas. I believe all of us have a duty to support each other and try to live more peaceful and prosperous lives. I do not expect everyone to become professional writers, but I do hope to inspire people to overcome social and racial tensions through writing. If we can speak to each other with our spiritual voices, we can reveal our true identities. When we do not see each other only as physical beings we can begin to overcome many of the obstacles that divide us. I hope the words I write inspire charity and hope wherever they are read.
