Writing, for me, is a means of self-expression, an outlet for the rigors of confinement.
Prison, ironically, has afforded me a great educational advancement (Associate of Arts, Bachelor of Science, Masters in Literature) to which I gratefully appreciate and continue to adhere to.
I have many published works to my credit, the majority of which is poetry in Bayousphere (www.uhcl.edu/bayousphere). Being awarded an HM from PEN in 2008 (Drama) was motivational for me.
My most recent publishing is anthologized (“The Road to Redemption”) by (www.solutionsforelpaso.org/2010). It is an inspirational process for me each time pen is put to paper, and I will continue doing what I enjoy doing.
