Raised in the Hunts Point section of
the South Bronx, doorways opened
from shadows on corners. Much can be told by the thoughts I have sharedfrom my pen; of families trying to
stay together or just trying to live.
The streets were tough when I was
growing up, but you had to be
tougher. That is why living through
these experiences helped me grow into something much more. I have
grown into a writer who has
dedicated his time and expressed
lessons learned to writing my first book
"A Train Ride of My Thoughts."
