I was born in Ponoka AB Canada in 1969. When in School I had very little interest in reading or writing. Writing poetry started off as a joke, with just a few romantic poems in my early twenties but only recently did I truly discover this buried gift that came about at the most difficult time of life. During this season of emotional turmoil, I wrote some of my deepest thoughts down on paper and today I want to share them with the world. Jesus Christ has been my inspiration to everything I have written and that is with no apology, without Christ and His influence in my life, I would be forgotten, not forgiven. Forgiven is a book that offers hope in a world gone mad and my desire is to do even a small part In making things just a little bit better".
