I have been writing poetry and short stories since I took a Creative Writing class at Purdue University in 1967. Unfortunately, that was the only class I passed, and I spent the next three years in the Army, including a tour in Vietnam. After leaving the Army, I earned a BS in Computer Science from Rutgers and a commission in the Army. I struck off on a career as a professional computer programmer and amateur poet.

 I find that my years of writing poetry have affected how I write prose. My wife keeps telling me to put more narrative into the story. My poetry side keeps trying to pare it down to the emotional bare bones. What I create is always a compromise between the two.
