Author has written 52 stories for Romance, General, Love, Friendship, Life, Family, General, and Politics.

I'd like to think my writing has improved over the past years, but as it stands, some of the poems below are good and some are not. I'll let the writing speak for itself. It's what you make of it that counts.
