I am a published poet and author.
My poems have been set to music and performed at Carnegie Hall and recorded on Grenadilla Records. Thus, I became a member of A.S.C.A.P.
I worked in publishing for several years as an editorial assistant. Subsequently, I earned my MS in Education and supported my writing career as a teacher in East Harlem, working with at risk children.
In 2001, I set up a small, independent press and published my first book, a prototype, 'Dear John: Letters from a Fan in New York CIty, AN INTERACTIVE BOOK.'
The book became a calling card. Sid Bernstein, who brought the Beatles to the USA, loved my writing and concept so much that he wanted to contribute the foreword to my current book, 'john lennon: in their own write, a loving tribute from his friends and fans.'
The book was launched with a joint-book signing with Mr. Bernstein and me at Bloomingdale's Flagship Store, at 59th ST and Lexington Ave, NY, NY. It is currently available from my own website, www.dearjohnlennon.com and at online stores. In addition, Barnes & Noble has it available at any store. If you ask for it, they will order it for you.
I have just been published by Pangea Corp. The title is available on iBooks for iPad, only.
It's called "A Lennon Pastiche.' It's a fully immersive interactive book with music, videos, interviews, poetry -- using Apple's latest capabilities to create rich, mixed media iBooks like no other. You may download a free sample, anytime, from the iTunes Store! Enjoy!
In addition, I am working full-time on a mainstream novel. In addition, I'm revising a suspense/romance thriller. My daily poetry continues.
