I was born and bred in Manhattan, and lived and worked there for fifty-five years before retiring to Delray Beach, Florida, with my wife and very best friend in the world, Wendy.
I was a copywriter for thirty-three plus years. That's way more than enough.
A terrible student, I never graduated college (unfortunately wasting a ton of my Dad's money...sorry, Dad, wherever you are), but went into advertising at my Father's suggestion (thank you, Dad, wherever you are...)
I started writing poetry as a little kid (considered very sissy at the time), and never stopped.
